The decade after the global financial crisis of 2008 has seen unprecedented levels of monetary accommodation, as developed market central banks intervened aggressively to prevent a repeat of the Great Depression. With the global economy picking up steam, these extraordinary steps now need to be unwound. As the era of negative interest rates ends, and expectations rise of central banks beginning to shrink their balance sheets, global financial markets – long used to the calming influence of the "central bank put" – are becoming increasingly volatile. Can developed market central banks manage a smooth exit? In developing markets like China and India, how can central bankers respond to minimize disruption to their local economies and markets? Join us for a conversation with Raghuram Rajan, former Governor of India’s central bank, former Chief Economist for the IMF, and Vice-Chairman of the Bank for International Settlements.
