Recent Monetary Policy Challenges in Japan and the World

使用言語:英語 (通訳なし)
日時: 2020年01月17日(金) 12:30 – 14:00
場所: Room 601
講演者: SHIRAI Sayuri (Keio University)


Since the global financial crisis, central banks in Japan, the United States, and the Euro Area have conducted accommodative monetary policy measures to achieve the 2% inflation target. While those measures helped to avoid deep recession and raise stock and real estate prices, their effectiveness has been increasingly questioned due to weak underlying inflation. In response, the United States has been searching an alternative monetary policy framework. In the face of prevalent adverse impacts of monetary easing, moreover, expansionary fiscal policy has become under spotlight recently to stimulate the economy and raise inflation. The seminar will take an overview of unconventional monetary easing measures, alternative monetary policy frameworks discussed, and the modern monetary theory (MMT). The seminar especially focuses on Japan where inflation and wage growth have remained sluggish despite serious labor shortages.
