Banca d’Italia is organising a conference on Monetary Policy in Exceptional Times: The Pandemic Experience and Current Challenges on September 29-30, 2022. The event will be held in person at the Banca d’Italia headquarters in Rome; if not possible, a virtual/hybrid format will be adopted.
The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from academia, central banks, and other policy institutions to discuss new and old challenges faced by monetary policy. We welcome submission of theoretical and empirical papers on relevant monetary policy issues, including, but not limited to, the following:
- monetary policy in an environment characterized by cost-push shocks, elevated uncertainty, low
natural interest rates and high debts;
- unconventional monetary policy tools: effectiveness of central bank asset purchases, liquidity
support operations, and communication;
- transmission mechanism of monetary policy: the role of the bank lending channel, financial
frictions, heterogeneous agents (firms, banks, households), and asymmetric shocks;
- interactions between monetary, fiscal, and macroprudential policies;
- monetary policy and structural changes: climate change and energy policies, demographic trends, technological and financial innovation.
Papers should be submitted in PDF format to MonPolConf2022@bancaditalia.it. The deadline for submission is May 30, 2022. The authors of accepted papers will be notified by June 27, 2022. Each paper will be assigned to a discussant. Limited financial support for travel and accommodation will be available for academic presenters and discussants. Barring exceptional circumstances, central bankers and other public officials will be asked to cover their own expenses.
The local organising committee is composed of Marco Bernardini, Antonio M. Conti, and Christian
