Weathering the storm: the recent past, present and future of UK monetary policy

Resolution Foundation hosted David Miles’s outgoing speech as a member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee.

A member of the Monetary Policy Committee – the body responsible for setting the Bank of England’s base rate –  since 2009, David Miles has been a key policy maker during a truly fascinating and tumultuous period for monetary policy in the UK. In his final speech in the role, he will reflect on the unprecedented changes that have occurred in the UK economy on his watch and offer some thoughts on the future for monetary policy.

At this Westminster event, David’s speech was followed by expert responses from Marian Bell, economics consultant and former MPC member, Kate Barker, economist and also a former MPC member, and Resolution Foundation’s chief economist Matthew Whittaker. There was also audience questions.
