Deep Dive Webinar - March 2022

The cost of living crisis: policy responses and economic impacts

March 16, 2022 | 3pm - 4pm UK (10am - 11am EDT)

Spurred by high energy prices and the continued dislocation of supply chains, inflation is at a multi-decade high in many developed markets. Central banks in developed states, unused to dealing with runaway price growth, are under pressure to respond. However, the supply side pressures that underlie the inflationary surge are not amenable to tighter monetary policy.

Taming inflation without choking off the post-pandemic recovery will be difficult to achieve. Soaring energy and food costs will hit consumption, but higher interest rates could apply a brake on economic activity in other damaging ways. Further problems could emerge if the major central banks follow divergent paths—which seems possible given differences in headline and core inflation among major markets.
