The DIW Lectures on Money and Finance bring together representatives of government, legislatures, the financial sector, think tanks, and academia to discuss how policy makers and monetary authorities can create policies and regulations that foster a more sustainable and stable financial system. Together with the speaker, we will debate questions revolving around crucial challenges for modern central banking, financial market regulation and stability and sustainability of financial systems. The event series is organized by Hans-Helmut Kotz (Harvard University and SAFE Goethe Universität Frankfurt), Lukas Menkhoff und Dorothea Schäfer.

We will debate the following questions: Why should central banks communicate with the public? How can communication enhance central bank transparency and openness? How could this help with the formation of expectations by the private sector? How has the global financial crisis affected the need to effectively communicate monetary policy decisions? What are the challenges in communicating to a broader audience?

The Keynote Speech Communicating Monetary Policy is held by Gabriel Makhlouf, Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland
