The 2017 Minsky Conference addressed the implications of the new administration’s “America First” policies, focusing on the outlook for trade, taxation, fiscal, and financial regulation measures to generate domestic investments capable of moving the growth rate beyond the “new normal” established in the aftermath of the Great Recession, without jeopardizing financial stability. It also assessed the impact of different financing schemes on both infrastructure investment and the return of central bank monetary policies to more neutral interest rates, as well as the new policy proposals' implications for the performance of European and Latin American economies.
