EABCN Conference: Inflation Developments after the Great Recession
Euro Area Business Cycle Network (EABCN)
Inflation Developments after the Great Recession
Eltville (Frankfurt), 6-7 December 2013
Hosted by the Deutsche Bundesbank; Sponsored by the EABCN
Inflation is at the moment under control in most of the developed world. Actually, in some areas there are deflation risks and in others active policies are in place to exit from deflation. However, rising fiscal deficits and public debt and unconventional monetary policy may have inflationary effects in the medium run, though the transmission mechanisms are still unclear and the uncertain environment makes it difficult to project future effects and developments in inflation expectations.
This conference will focus on empirical and theoretical contributions providing an assessment of various issues related to inflation developments, offering new perspectives on structural analysis, forecasting and economic policy design and assessment.
