16th Annual Hyman P. Minsky Conference: Global Imbalances—Prospects for the U.S. and World Economies
Levy Economics Institute of Bard College
Annandale-on-Hudson, New York
April 19–20, 2007
The 2007 Hyman P. Minsky Conference drew upon public discussions on the United States and world economies in the context of prevailing economic trends and their implications. The presenters—top policymakers, economists, and analysts—addressed such topics as fiscal and monetary policies for continued growth and employment; currency market fluctuations and the consequent exchange-rate misalignments, as well as possible cures; and the US household and trade deficits, their implications for growth and employment, and their effect on the conduct of monetary and fiscal policy. The United States' role in the global marketplace was examined in view of the current international economic landscape.
