Announcement: NBU Open Research Seminar on Monetary policy under disagreement

18 April 2018

Press Release


On 23 April 2018 the next open research seminar will be held in the National Bank of Ukraine. Participants of the event will learn the preliminary results stated in Monetary policy under disagreementpaper by Oreste Tristani, senior advisor of Directorate General Research in the European Central Bank, and David Vestin, senior advisor of Research Division, Monetary Policy Department in the Sveriges Riksbank.


During the seminar, Dr. Vestin will discuss the consequences of announcing its interest rate forecast by a central bank. In their research, authors explore the ability of a relatively standard new Keynesian model to produce the observed in data discrepancy between market expectations and central bank intentions on interest rate, when both the private sector and the central bank receive the signals of underlying economic shocks. The preliminary results of this study suggest that not publishing central bank forecast would cause even larger output and inflation fluctuations.
