The risks of financial institutions and markets in Serbia-microeconomic and macroeconomic approach (MESTD - 179005)

Serbia is in a process of a fundamental shift in its economic structure. Prior growth model has ended with the global financial crisis of 2007/2008 which has revealed an unsustainable nature of import and consumption based economic growth that has been in place since the beginning of the century. A shift towards investments and exports, with higher competiveness and most of the growth coming from tradable part of the GDP is needed. Ever since 2008, however, Serbia is in, more or less, economic stagnation, with three recessionary years. Investments are still inadequate and growth is below expectations. Fiscal consolidation has started to give important results in 2016, with growth gradually recovering but still below regional average. Is there room for improvement in the domain of monetary policy and functioning of the financial system that can give additional impetus to this new growth model? This paper is attempting to shed more light on these issues and to analyze specific problems of monetary economics and financial system status quo in Serbia. Specific recommendations are given for each area of possible improvements that could lead Serbia's economic growth towards higher and sustainable rates in the following years.
