These six teams of four students will compete on 19 March in the national final of the Challenge, to be held at the Bank of England in London.

"This is the fourth year of the Challenge and we continue to be delighted with the enthusiasm of students and teachers involved and the standard of the presentations," said Mervyn King, Governor of the Bank of England and Chairman of the Bank's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC). "By taking part in the Challenge, the students will have gained a valuable insight into the judgements by which the MPC assesses the UK and global economy to make a monthly interest rate decision to meet the Government's 2% inflation target. I warmly congratulate the six teams on reaching this stage of the Challenge and wish them all the best in the final on Friday."
