'The term structure of interest rates has always been at the nexus of monetary policy, macroeconomics and finance. The historic lows in policy interest rates since the onset of the crisis have exposed gaps in earlier models of the term structure, leading to new promising research that significantly enhances our understanding. This volume collects state of the art research on the term structure from the academic and policy communities, making it indispensable for both practitioners and policymakers who seek to deepen their knowledge of macro-finance during these challenging times.' Athanasios Orphanides, MIT Sloan School of Management

'This volume examines the challenges posed by the global financial crisis for policymakers and macro-financial economists and shows how they have risen to these. Contributors focus upon the money and bond markets that lay at the centre of this crisis, playing an increasingly important role in the communication and transmission of monetary policy. They suggest new non-linear yield curve models and methods for extracting about future inflation, output and default risk. This volume provides essential reading for policymakers, practitioners and academics interested in the financial sector and the economy.' Peter Spencer, University of York

'This timely conference volume addresses issues that are central to both the research agenda for macroeconomics and finance and to the decisions that policymakers will face as we emerge from the crisis.' Paul Tucker, Former Deputy Governor of the Bank of England
