Property markets and financial stability
The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) jointly organised a workshop on property markets and financial stability in Singapore on 5 September 2011. The workshop aimed to bring together academics and researchers at central banks, regulatory agencies and international organisations to present and discuss ongoing theoretical and empirical work in the field. In response to their call for papers, the organisers received 67 submissions from central banks, public agencies, international organisations and academic institutions. From these, a paper selection committee comprising staff of the BIS, the MAS and academia chose seven papers organised around the following four themes: (1) lessons from the crisis; (2) house price assessment; (3) housing booms and busts; and (4) property, credit and markets. All in all, 39 participants took part, including central bank economists as well as academics from Asia and the Pacific, Europe and the United States. Assistant Managing Director Andrew Khoo of the MAS and Frank Packer, Head of Financial Stability and Markets for Asia and the Pacific of the BIS, delivered the opening remarks. Professor Timothy Riddiough at the University of Wisconsin gave a keynote speech. This volume is a collection of the opening remarks, the keynote speech, revised versions of all the papers presented during the workshop, as well as discussant remarks on these papers.
