LCERPA is proud to be a sponsor of the upcoming conference:
WALKING THE TALK? CHALLENGES FOR MONETARY POLICY ACTIONS AND COMMUNICATION IN UNCERTAIN TIMES
: September 9-10, 2013
: Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
Five years into the crisis many central banks continue to keep policy rates extremely low and engage in several types of unconventional forms of monetary policy. More 'radical' measures are adopted, increasingly interpreted by some as politicizing or 'fiscalizing' monetary policy. While central banks have invested a great deal of effort in communicating these unconventional policies to the public, they are often confronted with stark criticism and face highly controversial public debates about their actions. Against this background, as part of the series of conferences organized under the umbrella of the Central Bank Communication Network, our 'Walking the talk" conference will examine the challenges faced by central banks around the world in communicating policies, the record of monetary policy, and the consequences of mixing monetary and fiscal policy.
