The Monetary Policy Forum
The Monetary Policy Forum (MPF) provides a rigorous and objective cross-check on the Bank of England and its Monetary Policy Committee. It brings together a real depth of experience to challenge orthodox thinking and offer a fresh perspective on the issues confronting policymakers today. Launched in 2009, the MPF was set up to enhance scrutiny of monetary policy decisions.
“Since its inaugural event…, [the Monetary Policy Forum] has become a must-attend event in the economic calendar,” according to The Daily Telegraph.
Each quarter, the MPF brings together a panel of individuals with an unrivalled breadth of experience and allows for the open exchange of views, ideas and research relating to the effective conduct of monetary policy and the outlook for the UK economy. Regular speakers include: Dame DeAnne Julius, DCMG, CBE; Sir John Gieve, KCB; Prof Charles Goodhart, CBE; Dr Ian Plenderleith, CBE; Dr Andrew Sentence, CBE; Dr Sushil Wadhwani, CBE; Marian Bell CBE; and Rachel Lomax.
The forum’s deliberations are informed by our latest forecast for the UK economy. Following a presentation of our UK forecast, our panelists are invited to debate its findings and conclusions. Each panel member gives their own views, after which the forum is thrown open to the audience for an open Q&A session and debate.
