The Inflation Target Ten Years On

STICERD Public Lecture

Date: Tuesday 19 November 2002
Time: 6.30pm
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Mervyn King
Chair: Professor Timothy Besley

Ten years ago, the then governor of the Bank of England delivered the inaugural LSE Bank if England lecture which argued the case for price stability. In this lecture, Mervyn King will examine whether ten years of inflation targeting have delivered the promised benefits, and discuss the challenges that lie ahead.

Mervyn King has been deputy governor of the Bank of England since 1998, responsible for monetary policy, and a member of the Monetary Policy Committee. Prior to this he was the Bank of England's chief economist and executive director.
