Event Detail

Will Inflation Force the Slowing or Reversal of Central Banks’ “Easy” Monetary Policy and Increase Risks of Economic Downturns?

Inflation is currently rising. Will it be sustained or transitory? Will global central banks address it? Will they abandon their decade-long “easy” monetary policy and manage down the size of their balance sheets even in a market repricing environment? Will their actions expose economies to economic downturns jeopardizing the recovery from the GFC and pandemic?

Join the Global Interdependence Center’s College of Central Bankers for an Executive Briefing on Wednesday, July 21, 2021. Our presenters include two Fellows of the College of Central Bankers, Athanasios Orphanides, Ph.D., the Former Governor of the Central Bank of Cyprus, and William Poole, Ph.D., a Former President & CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. This Executive Briefing will be moderated by College of Central Bankers Advisory Board Member, Jeremy Siegel, Ph.D., of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Click here to read a publication from Dr. Poole on market policy and inflation.
