Panel session 4 - Assessing the long-term sustainability and effectiveness of PCG schemes
The PCG introduced or scaled up during the financial crisis seemed to have softened somewhat the impact of the credit contraction, but due to the lack of available data it is very difficult to assess thoroughly the pros and cons of scaling up an existing schemes to address the crisis, versus the option of creating a completely new scheme for such a purpose.
The panel session will show the evidence found so far in mature versus younger PCG schemes to analyze overall performance and outreach. It will also describe the optimal variables that policy makers should target in order to rigorously evaluate the economic impact, additionality, and long-term sustainability of these mechanism.
