Should central banks issue digital currencies? #FBFDiscuss! @ Online
Jun 22 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Register here
The second event of the #FBFDiscuss! series will develop around the motion: “This House Believes that central banks should introduce central bank digital currencies.” The digitalisation wave in the financial sector has also reached the sphere of money, with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and stable coins such as Diem increasingly dominating headlines. Several central banks have recently confirmed plans to evaluate the option of issuing their own digital currencies, including for retail use. In April, the Eurogroup announced its support for ECB plans to possibly issue digital euros. This debate will explore the pros and cons of such a move to central bank-issued digital currencies, including retail digital currencies. Will it help central banks and the financial system to keep up with digitalisation trends? Or will it risk undermining the banking system, and lead to rising cyber frauds and money laundering risks? Will it increase the efficiency of payments further? Or will it eliminate what little privacy we have left in the financial system?

GENDER DIFFERENCES IN FINANCIAL LITERACY

Lecture by Annamaria Lusardi, The George Washington University, CEPR, NBER and Netspar 29 June 2021 – 13:00 CEST

The Women in Finance series aims to highlight successful women across different areas of finance, public service, academia, and private sector. In our second event of the series, Professor Annamaria Lusardi will present the results of her research on gender differences in financial literacy: “Our data, collected over many years, show that women are less financially literate than men. It is unclear whether this gap reflects a lack of knowledge or, rather, a lack of confidence. We show that women tend to disproportionately respond “do not know” to questions measuring financial knowledge, but when this response option is unavailable, they often choose the correct answer. We estimate that about one-third of the financial literacy gender gap can be explained by women’s lower confidence levels. These estimates matter; both financial knowledge and confidence can be linked to stock market participation.”

Speaker

Annamaria Lusardi is University Professor of Economics and Accountancy at the George Washington University School of Business (GWSB). Moreover, she is the founder and academic director of GWSB’s Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center. Previously, she was the Joel Z. and Susan Hyatt Professor of Economics at Dartmouth College, where she taught for twenty years.
