Challenging times for the US and EU - Where are the economic and monetary policies headed?

The Association of German Banks, together with the Minister for Federal and European Affairs of the State of Hessen Lucia Puttrich and the Institute for Economic Research are inviting to a panel discussion on the topic of „Challenging times for the US and EU - Where are the economic and monetary policies headed?“ on Monday, 21 November 2022, 18h30 at the Representation of the State of Hessen to the European Union (Rue Montoyer 21, 1000 Brussels).

The Russian war of aggression on Ukraine triggered massive price increases. But even before that, there were high inflation risks due to the Corona pandemic and creeping deglobalization. How should governments and central banks respond now? The phase of dis-flation, which lasted for almost two decades, has obviously come to an end. This poses enormous challenges for monetary and economic policies. What lessons can be learned from the intensive use of monetary policy after the financial crisis and during the pandemic, and how will governments and central banks act in the face of the new challenges? How are economic policies going to adapt and are they going to do so in time to stave off the worst repercussions of the current crises?

The panelists will discuss the impacts of the Russian war of aggression on Ukraine and of the Covid pandemic on our economies and how governments and central banks are likely to respond to this new phase of inflation.
