IIPP Research Seminar: WHITHER INFLATION? - Round Table II


UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose invites you to join us for the next instalment of the IIPP Research Seminar Series.

Whither Inflation? - Round Table I

Recently, inflation, i.e., the change in prices for goods and services over time, has become one of the main concerns for the global economy. Inflation is eroding the purchasing power of households, increasing interest costs to borrowers, eroding stocks of wealth, and leading to enormous shifts of resources. Poorest households, with a lower budget capacity to absolve this price increase, are the ones hit the hardest. As we look closely at this debate, policymakers and economists are divided between finding the causes, the right framework, and the best tools to fight inflation. Do we need to be open to different economic theories explaining the causes of inflation, or are the answers very much the same?

The IIPP Research Seminar Series, convened by Dr Carolina Alves, has dedicated some space to discuss these questions and many others with researchers from a range of different traditions within economics. This discussion is also very close to our mission, as inflation affects how public and private organisations think about their collaboration and purpose-driven goals.
