Sandra Parthie Event 24. January 2022 Livestream debate: Rising inflation – is it here to stay?

The recent surge in inflation has sparked a sometimes polarizing debate among central bankers, analysts, policymakers and the wider public. In July 2021, the ECB changed its inflation objective to a symmetric 2% target over the medium term. But euro area inflation has surged to 5% in December.

This virtual panel discussion will bring together leading economists to discuss questions like the following: Are we merely witnessing a temporary blip, or could inflation turn into a sustained threat for citizens and markets? Does the ECB adequately balance the benefits and side effects of its monetary policy? What are the political ramifications of inflation?
