Central Bankers and the Financial Crisis.

The second lecture of the Volta series on The Financial Crisis, originally scheduled for Monday the 27th of October, will be delivered by Donato Masciandaro in College on Tuesday, the 4th of November at 6.00 pm and will address the role that Central Banks have played in the management of the crisis.

The role of Central Banks in the crisis is one of the most ontroversial aspects of the crisis and has impacted not only on the early stages (2008 and 2009) but also the current recovery - or lack of recovery - from the crisis itself. Donato Masciandaro, a distinguished scholar and an expert on Financial Regulation will tackle these issues upfront and offer College major insights in our understanding of the crisis.

Donato Masciandaro holds a degree in Economics and Social Sciences from Università Bocconi (Milan, Italy). He has been a visiting scholar at the London School of Economics and Political Science and the International Monetary Institute and the Nederlandsche Bank in Amsterdam. He has also acted as economic advisor for the United Nations, the Interamerican Development Bank and the World Bank. He is Professor of Political Economics at the Università Bocconi in Milan.
