Andrew Lo on the adaptive markets hypothesis
 
06:12
The OECD New Approaches to Economic Challenges (NAEC) Initiative and the OECD Committee on Financial Markets (CFM) organised a workshop on financial markets on 20 October 2017. Andrew Lo, Professor of Finance at the MIT Sloan School of Management, outlines his “adaptive markets hypothesis”, according to which financial market dynamics are driven by our interactions as we behave, learn, and adapt to each other, and to the social, cultural, political, economic, and natural environments in which we live; and survival is the ultimate force driving competition, innovation, and adaptation.

Thomas Wieser on political constraints of EMU reform
 
37:40
What is feasible, when, and will it be enough? In December 2019, Thomas Wieser, non-resident scholar of Bruegel and former President of the Euro Working Group and of the European Financial Committee of the EU, gave a seminar on the political constraints of the EMU reform in the premises of wiiw. The present work strand of EMU Reforms has been an ongoing project for nearly a decade, and will continue for at least as long. Reforms have been undertaken against a vast background of analytical and policy papers going back decades. Progress has nevertheless been slow and uneven. To a certain extent there is genuine lack of intellectual agreement, but more importantly political approaches towards a stable and efficient monetary union differ across Member States. I shall discuss these issues against the background of the issues described in the so-called Four Presidents’ Report. How far have we gotten, and what are the medium term prospects for further reforms? What are the political forces that push, and what are the political forces that impede progress? Thomas Wieser was the Brussels based President of the Euro Working Group and Chairman of the EU’s Economic and Financial Committee from 2012 to 2018. In this function he was responsible for the preparation of the negotiations and decisions of EU Finance Ministers. He was the G 7 Deputy for the Eurogroup and represented the Euro Working Group in a number of other international fora. Prior to that Thomas Wieser was Director General for Economic Policy and Financial Markets of the Austrian Ministry of Finance. He studied economics in Innsbruck. His post graduate education took him to Boulder, Colorado, on a Fulbright scholarship, and the Institute of Advanced Studies in Vienna. At present he is associated with Bruegel, the Brussels Think Tank, as Non-Resident Fellow. He has held a number of other international functions, such as that of Chair of the OECD Committee on Financial Markets and has published on a range of economic policy issues.

What Is OECD? OECD Definition & Meaning
 
02:49
What is OECD? What does OECD mean? OECD meaning - OECD definition - OECD explanation. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD; French: Organisation de coopération et de développement économiques, OCDE) is an intergovernmental economic organisation with 36 member countries,[1] founded in 1961 to stimulate economic progress and world trade. It is a forum of countries describing themselves as committed to democracy and the market economy, providing a platform to compare policy experiences, seeking answers to common problems, identify good practices and coordinate domestic and international policies of its members. Most OECD members are high-income economies with a very high Human Development Index (HDI) and are regarded as developed countries. As of 2017, the OECD member states collectively comprised 62.2% of global nominal GDP (US$49.6 trillion)[3] and 42.8% of global GDP (Int$54.2 trillion) at purchasing power parity.[4] OECD is an official United Nations observer.[5] In 1948, the OECD originated as the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation (OEEC),[6] led by Robert Marjolin of France, to help administer the Marshall Plan (which was rejected by the Soviet Union and its satellite states).[7] This would be achieved by allocating United States financial aid and implementing economic programs for the reconstruction of Europe after World War II. (Similar reconstruction aid was sent to the war-torn Republic of China and post-war Korea, but not under the name "Marshall Plan".)[8] In 1961, the OEEC was reformed into the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development by the Convention on the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and membership was extended to non-European states.[9][10] The OECD's headquarters are at the Château de la Muette in Paris, France.[11] The OECD is funded by contributions from member states at varying rates and had a total budget of €374 million in 2017. Organisation for European Economic Co-operation The Organisation for European Economic Co-operation (OEEC) was formed in 1948 to administer American and Canadian aid in the framework of the Marshall Plan for the reconstruction of Europe after World War II.[12] It started its operations on 16 April 1948, and originated from the work done by the Committee of European Economic Co-operation in 1947 in preparation for the Marshall Plan. Since 1949, it was headquartered in the Château de la Muette in Paris, France. After the Marshall Plan ended, the OEEC focused on economic issues.[6] In the 1950s, the OEEC provided the framework for negotiations aimed at determining conditions for setting up a European Free Trade Area, to bring the European Economic Community of the six and the other OEEC members together on a multilateral basis. In 1958, a European Nuclear Energy Agency was set up under the OEEC. By the end of the 1950s, with the job of rebuilding Europe effectively done, some leading countries felt that the OEEC had outlived its purpose, but could be adapted to fulfill a more global mission. It would be a hard-fought task, and after several sometimes fractious meetings at the Hotel Majestic in Paris starting in January 1960, a resolution was reached to create a body that would deal not only with European and Atlantic economic issues, but devise policies to assist less developed countries. This reconstituted organisation would bring the US and Canada, who were already OEEC observers, on board as full members. It would also set to work straight away on bringing in Japan.

OECD Report: Scaling up Private Investment in LCR Infrastructure through Green Banks
 
01:09:19
This webinar features an overview of the highly anticipated report, "Green Investment Banks: Scaling up Private Investment in Low-carbon, Climate-resilient Infrastructure". Produced by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the report provides the first comprehensive study of publicly capitalised Green Investment Banks (GIBs) and analyses the rational, mandate and financing activities of this relatively new category of public financial institution. Based on the experience of over a dozen GIBs and GIB-like entities, the report provides non-prescriptive stock-taking of the diverse ways in which these public institutions are catalysing private investment in LCR infrastructure and other green sectors, with a spotlight on energy efficiency projects. The report also provides a summary for policy makers to guide the establishment, capitalization and operationalization of green investment banks. Robert Youngman, Team Leader of the OECD's Climate, Finance and Investment Unit, presents takeaways from the report. Douglass Sims, Director of Strategy and Finance at the Natural Resources Defense Council Center for Market Innovation, moderates the presentation and Q&A and will provide an introduction to the Green Bank Network.

Sustainable Development is coming, whether you are ready for it or not. How is the finance community supporting this, and what more can be done? My vision is for financiers to empower industries and the economy towards sustainable development. I am the Head of Sustainable Finance in the Asia Pacific for an international financial institution operating in over 40 countries. My main responsibilities are: 1) the origination and structuring of 'green', 'social' and 'sustainability' bonds, loans and other financial instruments, 2) advisory on sustainability ratings, and 3) supporting the integration of sustainability internally into product, sector and country teams' activities. I contribute on a number of expert sustainability and finance committees in the region, and reside in Singapore. Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry (MBioch) was my degree at University of Oxford, and I’ve lived, worked and traveled in over 60 countries . In my spare time I play piano and ukulele for relaxation, act like kids with my fiancé, sing with my Amazon parrot Morrocho, meditate on water, and delve into nature.

Investment funds are playing a bigger role in lending to small enterprises and infrastructure projects. The new entrants to the market, and old players taking on new roles, can help economies grow, but they also may bring new risks to financial markets. Can regulators keep pace with this rapid change? What new measures are needed to monitor them? This panel will feature representatives of leading financial institutions sharing their views about the future of finance.

Expert Discussion Regulation of cryptocurrency and token release has been developing worldwide for more than five years. During this time, many OECD countries have formed a basic legal framework for companies working with cryptoassets. International organizations and countries outline four public risks of the digital financial assets turnover and close the door for them: money laundering and financing terrorism, base erosion, consumer protection, and violating securities laws. Russia is also developing regulation regarding the use of crypto assets. EAEU countries, in turn, demonstrate different approaches on the issue. However, there is a strong need to harmonize principles of crypto economy regulation in Russia and other EAEU countries in accordance with international approaches.

What does CORPORATE GOVERNANCE mean? CORPORATE GOVERNANCE meaning - CORPORATE GOVERNANCE definition - CORPORATE GOVERNANCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Corporate governance broadly refers to the mechanisms, processes and relations by which corporations are controlled and directed. Governance structures and principles identify the distribution of rights and responsibilities among different participants in the corporation (such as the board of directors, managers, shareholders, creditors, auditors, regulators, and other stakeholders) and includes the rules and procedures for making decisions in corporate affairs. Corporate governance includes the processes through which corporations' objectives are set and pursued in the context of the social, regulatory and market environment. Governance mechanisms include monitoring the actions, policies, practices, and decisions of corporations, their agents, and affected stakeholders. Corporate governance practices are affected by attempts to align the interests of stakeholders. Interest in the corporate governance practices of modern corporations, particularly in relation to accountability, increased following the high-profile collapses of a number of large corporations during 2001–2002, most of which involved accounting fraud; and then again after the recent financial crisis in 2008. Corporate scandals of various forms have maintained public and political interest in the regulation of corporate governance. In the U.S., these include Enron and MCI Inc. (formerly WorldCom). Their demise led to the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002, a U.S. federal law intended to restore public confidence in corporate governance. Comparable failures in Australia (HIH, One.Tel) are associated with the eventual passage of the CLERP 9 reforms. Similar corporate failures in other countries stimulated increased regulatory interest (e.g., Parmalat in Italy). In contemporary business corporations, the main external stakeholder groups are shareholders, debtholders, trade creditors and suppliers, customers, and communities affected by the corporation's activities. Internal stakeholders are the board of directors, executives, and other employees. Much of the contemporary interest in corporate governance is concerned with mitigation of the conflicts of interests between stakeholders. In large firms where there is a separation of ownership and management and no controlling shareholder, the principal–agent issue arises between upper-management (the "agent") which may have very different interests, and by definition considerably more information, than shareholders (the "principals"). The danger arises that, rather than overseeing management on behalf of shareholders, the board of directors may become insulated from shareholders and beholden to management. This aspect is particularly present in contemporary public debates and developments in regulatory policy. Ways of mitigating or preventing these conflicts of interests include the processes, customs, policies, laws, and institutions which affect the way a company is controlled. An important theme of governance is the nature and extent of corporate accountability. A related discussion at the macro level focuses on the effect of a corporate governance system on economic efficiency, with a strong emphasis on shareholders' welfare. This has resulted in a literature focussed on economic analysis. Corporate governance has also been more narrowly defined as "a system of law and sound approaches by which corporations are directed and controlled focusing on the internal and external corporate structures with the intention of monitoring the actions of management and directors and thereby, mitigating agency risks which may stem from the misdeeds of corporate officers." One source defines corporate governance as "the set of conditions that shapes the ex post bargaining over the quasi-rents generated by a firm." The firm itself is modelled as a governance structure acting through the mechanisms of contract. Here corporate governance may include its relation to corporate finance.

The Economy Is Structured to Make the Rich Richer: Economics, Governance
 
01:05:54
Dean Baker (born July 13, 1958) is an American macroeconomist and co-founder, with Mark Weisbrot, of the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) in Washington, D.C. He is credited as being one of the first economists to have discovered the 2007–2008 United States housing bubble. In 1981, Baker graduated from Swarthmore College with a bachelor's degree in history with minors in economics and philosophy. In 1983, he received a master's degree in economics from the University of Denver. In 1988, he received a PhD from the University of Michigan in economics. From 1988 to 1989, Baker was a lecturer at University of Michigan and then, from 1989 to 1992, an assistant professor of economics at Bucknell University. From 1992 to 1998, Baker was an economist at the Economic Policy Institute. During this time, he published a paper with Mark Weisbrot in a journal of evolutionary economics.[6] In 1999, Baker co-founded, together with economist Mark Weisbrot, the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), an independent, nonpartisan think tank, which produces economic research on topics that affect people's lives to contribute to the public debate (social security, healthcare, the national budget), and internationally (global economy, International Monetary Fund, and Latin America policy).[7] Also in 1999, Baker was a senior research fellow at the Preamble Center for Public Policy. Baker has consulted with officials from the World Bank and has provided testimony to the Joint Economic Committee of the U.S. Congress and to the OECD's Trade Union Advisory Council. From 1996 to 2006, Baker was the author of a weekly online commentary the economic reporting of the New York Times and Washington Post.[8] The Economic Reporting Review was published from 1996 to 2006. From 2006, he has continued this commentary on his weblog Beat The Press, which was formerly published at The American Prospect, but is now located at the CEPR website. Baker won the Revere Award, along with Steve Keen and Nouriel Roubini, for predicting the crash of the United States housing bubble and the resulting recession, which occurred from 2007 to 2008[9]. He warned about the coming crisis and the related government policies in multiple articles, op-eds and interviews from 2002 to 2005.[10] Basing his outlook on house-price data-sets produced by the U.S. government, Baker asserted that there was a bubble in the US housing market in August 2002,[11] well before its peak,[12] and predicted that the collapse of this bubble would lead to recession. His prediction for when the recession would start was off by only one quarter.[13][14][15][16][17] Regarding the housing bubble, Baker was critical of chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan.[18][19][20] He has been critical of the regulatory framework of the real estate and financial industries, the use of financial instruments like collateralized debt obligation, and the performance and conflict of interest of U.S. politicians and regulators.[21] Baker opposed the U.S. government bailout of Wall Street banks on the basis that the only people who stood to lose from their collapse were their shareholders and high-income CEOs. Regarding any hypothetical, negative effects of not extending the bailout, he explained, "We know how to keep the financial system operating even as banks go into bankruptcy and receivership,"[22] citing U.S. government action taken during the S&L crisis of the 1980s.[23] He has ridiculed the U.S. elite for favoring it, asking, "How do you make a DC intellectual look less articulate than Sarah Palin being interviewed by Katie Couric? That's easy. You ask them how failure to pass the bailout will give us a Great Depression." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dean_Baker

Korea′s economic growth strong over past decade: OECD 

한국 10년간 경제성적 괜찮았다…OECD 3
 
01:51
Despite the lingering economic uncertainties around the world, Korea′s economic growth over the past decade has remained relatively strong in comparison to that of other OECD member countries. Sohn Jung-in has more. Korea came in at sixth place out of 34 member countries in terms of economic growth rate, growing at an average of three-point-seven percent per year during the period between 2005 and 2014, according to data released by the OECD on Monday. That′s two-and-a-half times higher than the OECD average of one-point-five percent. Chile ranked first on the list, with an average annual expansion of four-point-two percent during the same period, followed by Turkey, Israel, Poland and Slovakia. Australia and Mexico came behind Korea in seventh and eighth places, respectively. The latest figure for Korea represents an outstanding performance for the country, when compared to countries with a per capita GDP exceeding 30-thousand U.S. dollars. The top six countries on the list, with the exception of Korea and Israel, all had a per capita GDP in the 20-thousand dollar range. Also, unlike many OECD members that suffered a period of weak or negative growth right after the 2008 global financial crisis, Korea remained relatively stable. Korea recorded the lowest fall among the top six countries on the list from 2009 to 2014. Financial experts say now it′s time for Korea to come up with a new economic policy, while simultaneously pushing for structural reforms,... as the period of rapid economic growth for the country has come to an end.

Business models in the digital economy - TU Digitalisation Forum, Feb 2017
 
01:39:47
The digital economy is based on cross-border data flows and networks supporting business and social interactions – underpinned by greater opportunities for regulatory arbitrage between jurisdictions (such as tax avoidance, failure to protect data privacy, escaping financial reporting requirements, etc.). This is amplified by an increased mobility of intangibles, network effects, Big Data and multi-channel business models. It is dominated by a limited number of large corporations creating concerns about the resurgence of privately run oligopolies. Meanwhile, corporate governance regimes of so-called “unicorns”, fast growing digital businesses that operate on high-priced market valuations, often do not match minimum standards. The session will look at proactive solutions towards responsible business and investment practices, with particular attention to data privacy, tax compliance, investment risks and corporate governance.
