About the webinar
The Covid-19 pandemic has stretched the monetary policy and fiscal policy reaction to unprecedented dimensions in the situation where both real and nominal interest rates had already fallen considerably since the global financial crises. At the same time, inflation and inflation expectations have considerably fallen in advanced economies. The fiscal policy reaction has led to a very strong increase in debt, and longer term consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic on growth and inflation are yet unknown. What implications will this have on monetary policy going forward? Is fiscal dominance a real risk? Have monetary policy been successful in reacting to large shocks? What are the key challenges for the ECB and Fed monetary policy after Covid19?
The invited speakers will be James B. Bullard, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Isabel Schnabel, Member of the Executive Board, European Central Bank and Eric Leeper, Professor at University of Virginia
