    Mark McKenzie and Ole Rummel are back on air, ahead of a special webinar on the same topic coming up on 25 March 2022.

    Mark and Ole explore  the potential for digital assets and cryptocurrencies to lessen the  impact of sanctions and provide food for thought on steps that SEACEN members and stakeholders can take to scrutinize the use of digital  assets.

    Some key questions:


    What are sanctions?
    Can digital assets and cryptocurrencies be used to evade sanctions?
    What should businesses, including banks, in the SEACEN stakeholder space do to mitigate the risk?

    Season 3 Episode 7 - Challenges and Policy Options for Central Banks in Small, Open and Financially Integrated Economies

    Season 3 Episode 7 - Challenges and Policy Options for Central Banks in Small, Open and Financially Integrated Economies

    Dr. Mangal Goswami, Executive Director of the SEACEN Centre, talks to  former Governor Már Guðmundsson about Iceland’s crisis and recovery and  the lessons learned. More generally they discuss the challenges facing  central banks in small, open and financially integrated economies  (SOFIES) due to cross-border financial integration and volatile capital  flows. Preserving monetary and financial stability in SOFIES requires  more instruments than generally deployed before the great financial  crisis (GFC), such as foreign exchange interventions, macroprudential  tools and capital flow management tools, that in turn gives rise to the  need to develop an integrated policy framework. Finally, they discuss to  what degree these lessons are relevant in the current crisis.

    The  views of former Governor Már Guðmundsson on these issues are shaped by  his terms at the Central Bank of Iceland from August 2009 to August 2019  but also by his work at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) as  the Deputy Head of its Monetary and Economic Department from 2004-2009.  He was a chairman of a regular meeting at the BIS of Governors from  small open economies 2017-2019.
