The 2022 Hoover Institution monetary conference will focus on key questions that are integral to the recent discussions of ongoing monetary policy and strategies. A key goal is to examine how monetary policy got so far behind the curve following the pandemic, how to get back on track and thereby how to reduce the skyrocketing inflation without slowing down economic growth. Other policy issues—fiscal policy, price shocks, military conflict, exchange rates, the international monetary system—that are related to central bank strategies will figure into the analysis. This is a policy-oriented conference consisting of formal presentations, policy panels, and in-depth discussions. The conference builds on previous Hoover monetary conferences going back, for example, to 2009 and 2014. Background papers will be provided in advance of the conference.

This conference is by invitation only.
