Comment from our editors:

This is really an extraordinary conference on central banking. In the different recordings, you will find many different political economists confronting central bankers with the challenges and arguments around the wider debate on the role of central banks in times of financial instability, growing inequality, and an escalating climate crisis. There is a lot to learn here about central banking and how our financial system could benefit society and the environment.
