This event is a timely look at how economists think about inflation, particularly in light of the ongoing cost of living crisis. The first panel discussion features economists within academia, banking and think tanks as discussing recent research findings on inflation and standards of living and the challenges they pose for policymakers. The second panel considers teaching materials and strategies that effectively communicate the intricacies of inflation and its consequences to students. This event is the second in the RES’s new series of topical Summits, and is aimed at researchers, policy makers, lecturers and students interested in this topical issue.
