The payment landscape—retail, wholesale, and financial market payments—continues to evolve with the development of new technologies and with new regulations. Many areas of economics, including industrial organization, behavioral, monetary, and regulatory economics, have been applied to research on the economics of payments. This Economics of Payments conference continues the tradition of bringing together central bank, academic, government and industry economists to look at developments in payments and to think creatively about the future of payments.
Professor Robert Townsend, MIT
