As the US and UK economies contract at record levels, central banks and policy makers must act swiftly and innovatively to pave the road to recovery. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve are rolling out new policies and the regulatory framework on both sides of the Atlantic is changing.
At this event co-hosted by BAB and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, panellists together will explore what the choice to pursue specific policies (and not others) can tell us about the shape of today’s economy and the future that policy makers are trying to help build.
Professor Randy Kroszner (former US Federal Reserve Governor) and Paul Tucker (chair of the systemic risk council and former Deputy Governor Bank of England) will explore the implications of the policy response by the BoE and Fed. Richard Hunter (corporate ratings expert with Fitch Ratings) will review the impact of these policies on the health and resilience of large corporates.
