Central Banks and Policy Coherence

Handsome businessman presenting investment and financial growth concept

Modern central banks play an outsize role in our economic development through their central role in both monetary policy and financial regulation.

Many are now arguing that central banks should discharge their role in line with public policy on issues such as climate change, greening the economy and tackling economic inequality.

Others would rather the Pandora’s Box of policy coherence were not opened as it would potentially have no limits and would imply political direction for central bank activities.

This event will explore what is the right balance to be struck and appropriate governance models for today’s central banks.
