Fiscal Council Conference 8th-9th February

The Fiscal Council has an exciting lineup for its fifth annual Path for the Public Finances conference.

This year’s theme is “Ensuring debt sustainability in a post-Covid world”.

The conference will focus on the theme of fiscal policy in the era of high public debt and low interest rates that follows the outbreak of Covid-19.

The conference has two sessions: the first looks at fiscal policy of high debt conditional on current interest rates (debt sustainability analysis; what does it means for the fiscal rules, how should policymakers respond). The second takes a more “big picture” look at the sustainability of low interest rates given high public debt, ageing, financial implications and whether such pressures might influence monetary policy.

The conference takes place over 8th – 9th February 2021 from 2pm – 4pm both afternoons.

Speakers include Olivier Blanchard, Agnès Bénassy-Quéré, Charles Wyplosz, Hélène Rey, Philip Lane, Antonio Fatás and Karolina Ekholm.
