The Role of Central Banks in the COVID-19 Pandemic: The U.S., Japan, and Beyond
Friday, May 1 from 12:30 p.m. until 1:30 p.m.
The economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has already surpassed past crises in terms of global reach and severity. The world is struggling to come up with solutions. How can central banks maximize their roles to minimize the projected economic fallout? How should central banks coordinate their efforts?
Experts will discuss how central banks in the U.S., Japan, and beyond have responded to the current situation and how their policies will mitigate the economic impact of this pandemic in the short and long term. They will also share their views on how to assess the effectiveness and outlook of central banks’ policies.
