On 14 June, the Bank of England and the Centre for Economic Policy Research hosted the eighth Monetary Policy Roundtable. These events are intended to provide a forum for economists to discuss key issues pertaining to monetary policy in the United Kingdom. As always, participants included a range of economists from private sector financial institutions, academia and public sector bodies. There were two discussion topics:
- prospects for household saving; and
- cost, demand or uncertainty: why has the level of business investment been so weak, and when will it pick up?
