Taking the right path

Where does monetary policy go in a low rate, high inflation, unstable economic environment?

The Resolution Foundation and the Money, Macro and Finance Society are co-hosting a new series of events to dive into the big economic challenges we face as we recover from the pandemic and come to terms with the new world we now face. Internationally renowned economists and policymakers will discuss those challenges – from the state of multilateral policy making to the new challenges for fiscal and monetary policy makers.

The second event in the series will focus on the challenges facing monetary policy makers as they seek to tame high inflation without causing a recession. We will hear from Michael Saunders, external member of the Monetary Policy Committee and Petra Geraats, Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Cambridge. The event will be chaired by Rachana Shanbhogue, Finance and Economics Editor for The Economist.

All events will be open for people to physically attend, with all speaker appearing in-person, and will also be broadcast via YouTube and the Resolution Foundation website. Viewers and attendees will be able to submit questions to the panel before and during the event via Slido.
