Household Finance and Economic Stability The research platform is a cooperation between researchers of the University of St. Gallen. It is organised by Martin Brown, Monika Bütler, Roland Füss und Winfried Koeniger. The recent financial and economic crisis in the US and Europe has demonstrated forcefully that a better understanding of household finance is crucial for macroeconomic and financial stability. The current fears over a real estate bubble in Switzerland and its possible consequences for banking sector stability and macroeconomic performance highlight that household finance is likely to be at the core of Swiss economic and financial policy considerations for years to come. The objective of this website is to enhance the visibility of the ongoing research and policy analysis at UNISG on household finance and its macroeconomic consequences. Information on researchers and their publications on the topic, research themes and conferences at UNISG are available following the links on the top of this page. Some interesting links to research and comments on the topic outside of UNISG are available following links on the right of this page.
