Crises, Systemic Risk and Financial Frictions

Research in this area addresses the tradeoff between financial stability and economic performance when taking into account the heterogeneity and interconnectedness of economic agents. Examples include exploring the role of interbank lending in the propagation of systemic risk, analyzing the efficacy of Basel III regulatory limits on bank leverage, understanding the role of CCP clearing in OTC markets, and assessing the role of transparency (such as by limiting use of iceberg orders) in financial markets.
