This seminar will explore the legal, political, and architectural challenges of building institutions that promote capital development without spurring instability or crisis. Presentations will focus on the case study of Brazil. Questions to be addressed include:

  • What are the current macroprudential and regulatory challenges facing emerging market economies, particularly Brazil?

  • How do development and financial stability goals intersect, and what policies have been advanced in the Brazilian context to address these dual concerns?
