Together we stand, divided we fall?

Is multilateral policy making equipped for the global economic challenges we face?

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 series will kick off with an event assessing the state of multilateral economic policy making in the wake of Brexit, the pandemic and the Ukraine conflict. Have lessons been learned from the global co-ordination around the financial crisis and the roll out of Covid-19 vaccines, or has the rise of populism fragmented the world order?

We will hear from Adam Posen, President of the Peterson Institute for International Economics and former MPC member at the Bank of England. He will be joined by Katharine Neiss, Chief European Economist at PGIM Fixed Income, and former Head of International Surveillance at the Bank of England.

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.
