Conference on Inflation Challenges in an Era of Relative Price Shocks
There will be two conferences. The first will take place on 16-17 JUNE 2009 in Münster, Germany. A follow-up conference will be held on 17-18 AUGUST 2009 in Sydney, Australia. Topics: 1. Is there a new global paradigm of resource shortages or is it the 1970s all over again? 2. Modeling commodity prices and inflation – globally and nationally – and monetary policy responses. 3. How are inflationary expectations affected by relative price shocks? 4. The transmission mechanism of global shocks. Are new modeling strategies needed? 5. How should national monetary and fiscal policies respond to relative price shocks as opposed to inflation shocks? 6. The international transmission of policy responses. Is a co-ordinated policy response required or is it better for countries to pursue independent policies?
