The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has recently released a series of research papers dissecting the criticisms many have of large and complex financial institutions, according to a blog post by the Fed’s Donald Morgan this past Tuesday.

These papers were written with the belief that “good research is a vital input to sound economic policy,” according to Jamie McAndrews, executive vice president and head of the Research and Statistics Group at the New York Fed.

This series of eleven papers, which will be summarized by the Fed in the coming weeks, are available through the New York Fed’s Economic Policy Review:
