The International Monetary System: Contagion and Spillovers


Lecture Speech by Sir Paul Tucker


The global financial crisis prompted two reform programmes: to strengthen the resilience of financial system and to improve the workings of the international monetary system (IMS). With good reason, received wisdom is that reform of the IMS stalled, on the age-old reluctance of countries with current account surpluses to accept a doctrine of symmetric adjustment to global macroeconomic imbalances.  But have the reforms to the financial system had the incidental benefit of mitigating some of the worst fault lines in the IMS? In this lecture, Paul Tucker will set out how the answer could be affirmative, provided there is determination and collective effort across the official sector.
