Uncertainty surrounding inflation has widened considerably across the globe since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Risks have shifted from persistently on the downside over the last decade to decidedly on the upside in the face of resurging demand and supply shortages as economies reopen. These developments pose considerable challenges for households, businesses, market participants, and policymakers. This conference aims to bring together insights from academics and policymakers to discuss inflation risks, their drivers, and how they propagate to the real economy and financial markets, and the extent to which policymakers can respond to these challenges.
The Swiss National Bank, the Bank for International Settlements, and the Division of International Finance of the Federal Reserve Board will jointly organize the second conference on Global Risk, Uncertainty, and Volatility. We welcome submissions within the broad themes of inflation risk and uncertainty.
The deadline for submissions is November 15, 2021
Please send drafts of completed papers to GRUV2022@snb.ch
. Authors of accepted papers will be informed by January 15, 2022. The conference will be held as a hybrid event with virtual and in-person presentations.
