Rue de la Banque

Rue de la Banque No. 54, Janvier 2018

Deviations from ‘optimal prices’ may imply that monetary policy is not efficiently transmitted to inflation, hindering central banks’ objective of price stability. But is price dispersion also a concern for consumers? This Rue de la Banque describes price dispersion across stores in France and then focuses on the perspective of consumers. Indeed, price deviations from ‘normal’ prices are persistent over time in France and expensive and cheap stores tend to be consistently so across the products they sell. Luckily for French consumers, assessing the relative expensiveness of stores appears rather easy.

Assessment of Risks to the French Financial System

Assessment of risks to the French financial system December 2017

The following report seeks to identify the risks and vulnerabilities present in the French financial system along with the system’s strengths and sources of resilience. 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.
