Financial Seminar in Shanghai - Mortgage Market Design: How to prevent future financial crises
9 March 2016

Residential mortgages are of first-order importance for households, financial institutions, and macroeconomic stability. The typical household in a developed economy has one dominant asset - a house or apartment - and one dominant liability - a mortgage. The global financial crisis that began in 2007 has made it abundantly clear that problems in mortgage lending have the potential to destabilize the financial system and the economy.

In this talk Professor Kasper Meisner Nielsen will talk about mortgage market design and the appealing features of mortgage markets that can help reduce the risk of future financial crises.
