10tn Joint Conference by EABCN, ECB, FRB and GCE - International Research Forum on Monetary Policy IRFMP 2018
The purpose of the IRFMP is to promote the discussion of innovative research on theoretical and empirical macroeconomic issues with relevance for monetary policy. Topics: - factors accounting for very low global real interest rates; - whether central banks have adequate scope to ease policy in a recession, or whether a substantial shift in the monetary policy framework, such as a higher inflation target, is needed; - the puzzlingly weak response of inflation and wage growth to resource slack in many countries, suggesting a possible breakdown of the Phillips Curve; - the causes of the slowdown in productivity growth in industrial countries, and implications for economic growth, monetary policy and fiscal sustainability; - international spillovers from prospective normalisation in some industrial economies, including through exchange rates and capital flows; - the role of monetary policy in containing financial stability risks; - model uncertainty, information frictions or heterogeneous agents/beliefs.
