6th DIW Lecture on Money and Finance Monetary -Policy in the Modern Era – Gabriel Makhlouf Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland

Mittwoch, 26.02.2020 -12:00 - 13:30

Gabriel Makhlouf took up his position as Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland on 1 September 2019. He chairs the Central Bank Commission, is a member of the Governing Council of the European Central Bank, a member of the European Systemic Risk Board, and is Ireland’s Alternate Governor at the International Monetary Fund. Before joining the Central Bank Gabriel was Secretary to the New Zealand Treasury and the Government’s chief economic and financial adviser from 2011 to 2019. During his time as Secretary, he led reviews of New Zealand’s three macroeconomic pillars (monetary, financial stability and fiscal policy) and the development of a new framework for the development of economic and public policy focused on intergenerational wellbeing. In addition Gabriel was New Zealand’s Alternate Governor at the World Bank, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, Asian Development Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. He was also co-chair of the Trans-Tasman Banking Council. Previously Gabriel worked in the UK civil service where his roles ranged from policy on domestic and international tax issues through to large-scale operational delivery. He has also chaired the OECD’s Committee on Fiscal Affairs and was responsible for the UK’s Government Banking Service.

We will debate the following questions: Why should central banks communicate with the public? How can communication enhance central bank transparency and openness? How could this help with the formation of expectations by the private sector? How has the global financial crisis affected the need to effectively communicate monetary policy decisions? What are the challenges in communicating to a broader audience?

The DIW Lectures on Money and Finance bring together representatives of government, legislatures, the financial sector, think tanks, and academia to discuss how policy makers and monetary authorities can create policies and regulations that foster a more sustainable and stable financial system. Together with the speaker, we will debate questions revolving around crucial challenges for modern central banking, financial market regulation and stability and sustainability of financial systems. The event series is organized by Hans-Helmut Kotz (Harvard University and SAFE Goethe Universität Frankfurt),  Lukas Menkhoff and Dorothea Schäfer.
