The sixth annual Europe-U.S. Symposium was held at the Weill Center in Armonk, New York as the subprime crisis continued to unfold. Discussions at the Symposium occurred in the context of continuing concern about the U.S. and global economies, as well as uncertainty about the ultimate effects of the ongoing subprime crisis. Two sessions addressed global financial stability, one from the perspective of the impact and control of the liquidity and credit crises and one from the perspective of new regulatory approaches and principles. The third session considered new principles for regulation of international financial transactions, including selective recognition and the EU model. 

•  Global Financial Stability: New Regulatory Approaches and Principles
