Webinar: Central bank digital currencies – separating the reality from the hype
The reality of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) is only slowly rumbling into view, but their potential impact is already generating considerable hype. Join our senior economists for a special discussion about CBDCs and whether they represent a revolution in central banking, a misunderstood sideshow, or something in between.
The team will examine the theory behind CBDCs but will also take a close look at the practicalities, discussing how they are likely to be introduced in the coming years and what they could mean for how economies are managed. Our economists will address key issues including:
- The basics: What CBDCs are, and what they are not;
- The big picture: What impact will the introduction of CBDCs have on central banking?
- Comparative studies: The PBOC’s progress, plus the view from the Fed, the ECB and others.
Time: Thursday, 24th June at 1000 ET/1500 BST
