On October 5th 2016 Professor Paul Fisher delivered a lecture on the theme of central banking capabilities to a group of around 30 students and faculty at the Richmond Business School in Kensington, London. During the talk Paul focused on 3 inter-linked issues:
- what can central banks achieve (and not achieve) in policy terms?
- expectations of what central banks can use their balance sheet for.
- expectations on economic forecasts.
The talk was followed by a lively question and answer session. Please click this link to access the slides used for this talk: ‘What-not-to-expect-from-central-banks.‘ Details on how to access the full paper will be released soon.
