Quarterly Bulletin 2008 Q4
Published on 15 December 2008

On 30 September, the Bank of England and the Centre for Economic Policy Research jointly hosted a Monetary Policy Roundtable. This was the first in what is expected to become a regular series intended to provide a forum for economists to discuss key issues affecting the design and operation of monetary policy in the United Kingdom. There were four discussion topics: the prospects for the housing market and consumer spending; oil and other global price pressures; monetary policy considerations at the current juncture; and lessons from the financial turmoil for monetary policy. This report summarises the main points made by participants at the Roundtable.
