Economic Analysis and Forecasting for Macroprudential and Monetary Policymaking

Economists are taking lessons from the crisis and to then use these to inform the preparation of a suitable toolkit to predict (and help limit) future periods of volatility. More responsive economic analysis that provides a framework for macroprudential policy is the goal. This dynamic, constrained optimisation problem is the focus of this four-day course that features a panel of expert speakers and will be chaired by David Mayes, former chief economist at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. The course draws on practical central banking experience, as well as views from academia and the private sector.
