The MPC meets each month to determine the official interest rate for the UK, in order to meet the Government's inflation target of 2.0%. The Challenge involves teams of 16 to 18-year-olds assessing a wide range of economic data and issues. The teams consider the outlook for the economy and inflation before deciding on the appropriate interest rate.
