Event Summary

The Group of Twenty (G-20) initiated in 2008–09 a wide-ranging program of financial reform that was partly implemented, and partly transformed, in the following years. The Financial Stability Board (FSB) has coordinated the reform process and monitored its implementation. Now, the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftershocks raise new questions about the relevance and direction of this global framework for financial services policy. Joining this episode of Financial Statements were:
