This conference, jointly hosted by the Reserve Bank of Australia and the Centre for Applied Macroeconomic Analysis, Australian National University, considered the substantial swings in global commodity prices, particularly of food and energy, over recent years.

  • Seminar: Intertemporal effects of capital requirements on risk taking behavior of banks
    Dr Gerhard Hambusch, University of Technology Sydney
    13 August 2009
    Canberra

This paper analysed the impact of regulatory capital requirements on the risk taking behavior of value maximizing banks using a dynamic financial intermediation model. It investigated several cases of intertemporal effects of capital regulation on risk choices when banks face different regulatory conditions. The results reveal differences in a bank's risk taking behavior based on profit, multiplier, and leverage effects. The relationships between retention rate, discount factor, and risky asset return have important implications for first and/or second best regulation. Optimal regulatory rules are derived for different scenarios.

  • Conference: Conference on Behavioural Macroeconomics (CAMA EVENT)
    22 - 23 June 2009
    Sydney

This two-day conference run by the Centre for Applied Macroeconomic Analysis at the Australian National University and the Reserve Bank of Australia brings together leading researchers from the US, Europe and Oceania to present recent advances in behavioural macroeconomics. The themes and papers have a strong theoretical footing, but the workshop's purpose is to showcase the range of applications of behavioural methods and to display their policy relevance. The workshop will therefore be of interest to academics and research students, to policy makers from central banks and government departments as well as to financial market economists.
