Bank of Canada Review: Spring 2008

The BoC Review for Spring 2008 is now available, comprised of three articles:

  • Canada’s Experience with a Flexible Exchange Rate in the 1950s: Valuable Lessons Learned
  • Price Discovery Across Geographic Locations in the Foreign Exchange Market
  • Developing a Framework to Assess Financial Stability: Conference Highlights and Lessons

I regret that I am not much interested in Foreign Exchange, but the third article, reporting on a Financial Stability conference, is most interesting. Most of the papers presented are available on the BoC website and I’ll be working through them – slowly! – in the course of the next few weeks.

Update, 2008-5-23: One paper discussed the previously reported Stress Testing on Australian Banks : Housing Implosion. I have updated that post.
