Financial Stability Review

Financial Stability Review N°22, April 2018

The 22nd edition of the Banque de France’s Financial Stability Review is entitled “Non-bank finance: trends and challenges”.

Rue de la Banque

Rue de la Banque No. 66, July 2018

This Rue de la Banque analyses the long-run evolution of wealth in France from 1800 to 2014, using estimates from Garbinti, Goupille-Lebret and Piketty (2017). Following a period of prolonged stability during the 19th century, inequality declined significantly from the beginning of the 20th century before increasing, moderately but constantly, since the mid‑1980s. Financial assets have accounted for an ever-increasing proportion of the wealth of the richest individuals since the 1970s. In the long run, highly contrasting scenarios for the evolution of wealth inequality are possible, depending on differences in labour incomes, saving rates and asset portfolio rates of return.

This analysis is used in particular to inform the deliberations of the Banque de France’s governing authorities and of the HCSF. It seeks to provide support for proposals on macroprudential policy made by the governor of the Banque de France to the HCSF and, where appplicable, to assess the impact of these prudential proposals or measures on financial stability.
