RBA Annual Conference – 2006 Demography and Financial Markets

This G-20 workshop, jointly hosted by the Reserve Bank and the Australian Treasury, brought together academics, policy advisors, private sector participants and representatives from the participating G-20 nations. The workshop examined the impact of demographic trends on macroeconomic factors relevant to financial markets, particularly saving and investment, capital flows and asset prices, as well as on the structure and operation of financial markets. The participants also placed considerable focus on policy issues, identifying the nature and extent of possible market imperfections and impediments, and the scope for policy-makers to address these.
