Event description

Description

Since the global financial crisis, real incomes have fallen, cuts to public services have been dramatic and interest rates have hit record lows. A decade on - and a weak and inconsistent recovery later - has led to the question, what lessons have we learnt if any?

More importantly, why are we still witnessing housing bubbles and rapid expansions in consumer credit across the world?

Fresh perspective

Johan Rewilak presents evidence on the importance of maintaining financial stability - and how financial instability is a phenomenon that depresses the economy even in the absence of a full-blown crisis.

He will discuss which various measures of financial instability are seen to peak prior to financial crisis and shows how more financially stable economies can withstand surges of credit inflows that have jeopardised economies in the past.

Benefits of attending

Examine the new schemes and regulations put in place by various multilateral organisations in an effort to try clean up the banking system, and discusses what we may expect to see in the future.

Hear real examples used to supplement the academic findings.

Speaker

Johan Rewlaik joined Aston Business School in May 2016 after spending two years working close to his hometown in West Yorkshire, at the University of Huddersfield as a lecturer in economics.

Prior to that he spent almost ten years in the East Midlands studying at both the University of Leicester and the University of Nottingham. He also worked as a research associate on an ESRC-DFID funded project “Finance, politics and growth” which had a strong focus on Africa.

Outside academia he has a strong interest in sports. A keen runner and footballer, he has competed at a high level in both.
