This year sees strategic policy reviews being conducted at the Bank of England, Federal Reserve and ECB. Richard will discuss:
- Why so many of the world’s major central banks have simultaneously embarked upon this exercise;
- How the outcome of these reviews will shape the conduct of economic policy over the coming decade;
- The concept of policy space; and
- Why, unfortunately, the opportunity to restore policy space is likely to be missed.
