Central Bank Monitoring II/2021

Uncertainty regarding future economic developments is still high, but central banks are now registering rising inflation and a positive surprise in the form of stronger-than-expected economic growth.

The current Spotlight focuses on central banks’ inflation targets – their legal definition, their numerical values and their formulation in terms of point values or ranges – and on the inflation indices they monitor. In our Selected Speech, Deputy Governor of the Norwegian central bank Ida Wolden Bache discusses the effect of new technology and cryptocurrencies on the future shape of the financial system.
