On Tuesday we hosted a conference to discuss the longer term outlook for inflation. Our guest speakers were Adam Fergusson, the author of the brilliant book “When Money Dies” about the Weimar Germany hyper-inflation, Andrew Sentance, the famously hawkish former MPC member, and Ken Mulkearn, the editor of the Income Data Services Pay Report. Our very own Ben Lord also gave an update on developments in the linker and credit markets. Given yesterday’s Bank of England announcement of an additional £75 bn of QE, the discussions were pretty timely.
I did think about writing it up for the blog, but Andrew Oxlade of the Daily Mail has beaten me to it. Click here for his report. We did film the speakers, so we might be able to link to the video of the speeches shortly too.
