16th Annual Hyman P. Minsky Conference on the State of the US and World Economies
Global Imbalances: Prospects for the U.S. and World Economies
The 2007 Hyman P. Minsky Conference focused on monetary and fiscal policies for continued growth and employment; currency markets fluctuations and the consequent exchange-rate misalignments, as well as possible cures; and the United States' households and trade deficits, their implications for growth and employment, and their effect on the conduct of monetary and fiscal policy. The US role in the global marketplace was examined in view of the current international economic landscape.
The conference was held April 19–20, 2007, at the Levy Institute’s research and conference center at Blithewood on the campus of Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y.
