- Will central banking be the same after the "Great Recession" as it was before?
- Should monetary policy react to housing markets and asset price bubbles?
- Are two or more pillars (i.e. central bank policy rules) better than one?
- Are central banks the best banking supervisors?
- What are the potential tensions between monetary policy and banking supervisors?
- Are quantitative easing and other unconventional policies adequate instruments during recessions.
Last but definitely not the least, on the issue of quantitative easing and other unconventional policies: The question of adequacy did not get much attention, as with interest rates at record-lows in the developed world, there is not much else to do. The discussion rather focused to the implementation of timely exit strategies, and here there seems to a difference of opinion between the U.S. Fed's hold-for-longer and ECB's more cautionary approaches.
