Even 10 years after the start of the global financial crisis, and seven years after the beginning of the European sovereign debt crisis, large stocks of government debt remain a significant concern in advanced as well as developing countries.
A major objective of the ADEMU project is to contribute to the scientific discussion on the future design of European institutions to deal with financial stability and debt sustainability. On 5-6 April, ADEMU held a two-day conference at the Toulouse School of Economics, featuring topics including optimal austerity (Timothy Kehoe, University of Minnesota), the cost of sovereign defaults (Aitor Erce, European Stability Mechanism) and optimal debt maturity management (Galo Nuno, Banco de Espana).
