This chapter presents a summary of the main themes of the preceding chapters. It presents the following principles to guide in the design of the new international financial architecture: (i) full cognizance of the social costs of the externality of systemic risk is needed, particularly its macroeconomic impact; (ii) homogeneity of market behavior is a threat to liquidity, particularly at time of high volatility, when convention has broken down; (iii) steps need to be taken to reinforce the stabilizing power of convention; (iv) international policy formation and implementation should be international in scope because financial markets are today international; and (v) international decision making and standard setting should be effective in devising principles of efficient regulation, accountable in terms of transparency and clear lines of decision-making authority.
