" We set out with this competition to help students see economics as relevant and exciting, so we have been delighted with the response of students and teachers alike," said Sir Edward George, the Governor of the Bank of England and Chairman of the Bank's Monetary Policy Committee. "Through following the process by which the Bank makes its own monthly interest rate decision to meet the Government's 2.5% inflation target, all the students who participate in the Challenge get a thorough and invaluable insight into the process of assessing the UK and global economies. The national final will be the culmination of a lot of effort and my best wishes go to all the teams."
