The annual research conference (ARC) of the central banks of Ukraine and Poland will take place on 28–29 May 2020. The Canada-IMF Technical Assistance Project of NBU Institutional Capacity Building and the Kyiv School of Economics will support the ARC.
Labor markets are undergoing dramatic transformations today, posing new challenges for the monetary policies of different countries. Economic inequality is growing, the population is aging, labor markets are being liberalized, and migration is taking place. All of this can threaten the global economic development and macroeconomic stability in the long run. These are the reasons we have picked the relationship between monetary policy and the labor market to be the topic of the ARC this year.
The ARC will traditionally be international, despite the global coronavirus pandemic. Representatives of central banks and financial institutions, experts, and researchers from different countries will attend. Unlike in previous years, however, the conference will be held online.
Discussion topics include:
- impact of monetary policy on economic inequality
- impact of economic cycles on monetary policy
- migration and its impact, and sustainability of countries in the long run
- labor productivity and wage dynamics in a market dominated by one employer
- impact of wages on inflation
Conference speakers will be representatives of the central banks, financial institutions and the world’s leading universities of Poland, the United States, Canada, Sweden, Spain.
