Finance, money and climate change - Open policy panel session of the 74th Economic Policy Panel meeting
As fighting climate change becomes the world’s top post-pandemic priority, financial intermediaries, their regulators and central banks have all been called to contribute. A major new research report exploring the scope and limits of green finance and the possibility of ‘greening’ monetary policies will be launched at an online panel discussion hosted by Europe’s leading economic policy journal on Thursday 21 October 2021.

Markus Brunnermeier of Princeton University and CEPR, who has co-authored the study with former top French and international policy-maker Jean-Pierre Landau of Sciences Po, will present a new framework for thinking about finance, money and climate change – identifying the trade-offs and key choices to be made.

His presentation will be followed by a discussion with Anna Breman, deputy governor of Sveriges Riksbank, the central bank of Sweden, and Adam Tooze, Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Professor of History at Columbia University, moderated by Tim Phillips, presenter of CEPR’s Vox Talks Economics podcast.
