Event dates: 18 - 19 May 2017
The topic for the Workshop this year was “The distributional effect of central banks policies”
- How does central bank policy – including monetary, macro prudential and micro prudential policies - affect the distribution of income and wealth? What are the lessons for the optimal policy mix of central bank policies – and for broader macroeconomic policy?
- What is the evidence on the distributional effects of conventional and unconventional monetary policies?
- Does income and wealth distribution matter for the transmission of monetary policy and for the effectiveness of macro-prudential regulation?
As usual the programme also featured presentations from several delegates.
