Quarterly Bulletin 2018 Q1
Published on 23 March 2018

On 29 November 2017, the Bank of England and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) hosted their 16th Monetary Policy Roundtable. These events provide a forum for economists to discuss key issues relevant to monetary policy in the United Kingdom. As with previous Roundtable discussions, participants included a range of economists from private sector financial institutions, academia, public sector bodies and industry associations. There were two topics of

  • wage growth and the labour market: the factors contributing to weak wage growth in recent years; and
  • monetary policy normalisation and communication: the challenges to central bank communication in the context of a potential normalisation of monetary policy.

This report summarises the main issues raised by participants.
