Communication, Expectations and Monetary Policy
Organiser: European Central Bank
Chair: Marcel Fratzscher (DIW)
Speakers: Luis de Guindos (ECB), Silvana Tenreyro (LSE and external member of the Bank of England’s MPC) and Ricardo Reis (LSE)

Communication can help make central banks transparent and thereby contribute to their accountability and to the management of expectations of economic agents. While these roles are generally important, they have become even more relevant in recent times, when central banks needed to explain the rationale and the workings of new policy tools, and when central banks used forward guidance, a tool that relies entirely on communication. This plenary panel session will bring together distinguished policy-makers and academics to discuss issues such as the role of central bank communication in shaping agents' expectations, the effectiveness of forward guidance, and the future of monetary policy communication.
