The Return of Inflation: Is the Bank of England to blame?

14 September 2021
12:00 - 13:00 hrs
Oxford and Cambridge Club, 71-77 Pall Mall, St James's, London, SW1Y 5HD
As the UK emerges from the pandemic, much of the policy focus will switch to the economy. One central question will be: 'Is UK money growth excessive? And will it cause above-target inflation?' On Tuesday 14th September at 12 noon, Politeia will be holding a special event to mark publication of Professor Tim Congdon’s new Politeia pamphlet, The Spectre of Inflation. Tim Congdon is Chairman and Founder of The Institute of International Monetary Research at the University of Buckingham. He and two other speakers, Lord Kamall and Dr Gerard Lyons discuss whether the Bank of England is to blame for the return of inflation. If you would like to attend, please send an email to programme@politeia.co.uk with your name, position, organisation and phone number and we shall put you on the list. If you would like to bring a guest, please let us have the name and contact details.
