Call for papers

In the last twenty years, several periods of turmoil (the internet bubble, the subprime crisis, sovereign debt, etc.) have shaped the financial and economic system. Many regulatory policies, such as Basle 3, have been introduced to overcome further crises and scandals. In addition, monetary policy has experienced a transition from conventional to unconventional frameworks in both industrialized and emerging economies. For instance, turning to hedging and diversification of portfolios, commodities markets have attracted increasing interest. More recently, new forms of money have been introduced, such as virtual money (Bitcoin, among others), leading to a new bubble that might affect financial markets. These changes have influenced governance features at both macro and micro levels. Therefore, calls for more ethical and sustainable standards in finance and economic spheres have been growing since 2007. 

The current call for papers invites authors to submit proposals mobilizing different approaches to analyze the macro and micro effects of these changes on the financial and economic system.
