Financial stability and financial inclusion are often thought of separately by dedicated policy-makers and experts. Yet, they are two sides of the same coin. Furthermore, the solutions found to reconcile both objectives cannot be separated from local and spatial characteristics. The purpose of this webinar series is to discuss the link between financial stability and financial inclusion from a spatial perspective.
Prof. Gary Dymski is a Professor and Chair in Applied Economics at Leeds University Business School. He will discuss the necessity of thinking of financial stability and inclusion across space through the example of the US subprime crisis.
Please find attached Dymski's papers related to our topic:
- Development as Social Inclusion: reflections on the US subprime crisis
- Making financial instability visible in space as well as time: Toward a more Keynesian geography
