What are the underlying human and technical factors behind the 2008 financial crisis? How can we make banks more resilient going forward? How can we prevent systemicr risk? What are the relations between virtues, ethics and financial outcomes? How does ethics interact with economic and financial regularities? What are the main sources of aggregate fluctuations? How do the financial markets react to macroeconomic surprises and policy regime changes? How is fair-value accounting related to the business cycle? How can we make the financial system more stable? These are only some of the questions that the Banking and Finance group does extensive research on.
