Key Note Delivery from Winds of Change: The Case for New Digital Currency, By Christine Lagarde, IMF Managing Director Singapore Fintech Festival. -
“Change is the only constant,” wrote the ancient Greek philosopher, Heraclitus of Ephesus.
3 Points from Madam Lagarde :
"First, frame the issue in terms of the changing nature of money and the fintech revolution.
Second, evaluate the role for central banks in this new financial landscape—especially in providing digital currency.
Third, look at some downsides, and consider how they can be minimized"
