The world economy has recently been experiencing highly volatile foreign exchange and capital markets, a spread of unusual monetary policy actions, and disappointing growth and stability. These developments have led to a host of policy proposals ranging from reforms of the international monetary system built on rules-based monetary policy in each country to more interventions in the form of capital controls, exchange market actions, and macro-prudential regulations. The aim of the conference is to examine these recent developments and consider policy options.

A History Working Group seminar with Eric Schluessel.
Hoover's Workshop on Totalitarian Regimes studies the history and development of totalitarian regimes in order to understand why they came into being, how they work, and the sources of their durability. By bringing scholars together who study the different regimes, the workshop promotes the comparative study of modes of personal dictatorship, of institutions of coercion and repression, and of the economic and social consequences of totalitarian rule. The workshop's principal resources are the unique and fast- growing holdings of the Hoover Archives on totalitarian regimes in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
Thomas Hazlett, former chief economist with the US Federal Communications Commission, presented his book The Political Spectrum: The Tumultuous Liberation of Wireless Technology on the history of spectrum regulation.
