SFE Breakfast Briefing with Fathom Consulting - The Spectre of Euro Deflation
Time: 08:30 arrival, 09:00 start with a 10:00 finish
Venue: Blackrock, Exchange Place One, 1 Semple Street, Edinburgh, EH3 8BL
The euro area is facing falling prices and stagnation, challenging in normal times, but daunting for a currency union with highly asymmetric debt levels across its member states, and without any mechanism for fiscal transfers. What can the ECB do to avert the threat of persistent deflation to the euro? What impact would that have on the prospects for the region, and the rest of the world - and for asset prices? How will other euro area policy makers react?
These issues will be addressed by Erik Britton, Director of Fathom Consulting, in a forthcoming seminar.
This will then be followed by questions and answers from the attendees.
