Inflation: Causes, Effects, and Cures presented by the Virginia Center for Economic Policy

On April 29th in Monroe Hall, room 130 at 430pm,  the Virginia Center for Economic Policy presents:

Inflation: Causes, Effects, and Cures

Worldwide inflation has spiked over the past year. For Americans under age 40, about half the population, inflation is higher than at any time in their lives. Decades of low and stable inflation conditioned people to pay little attention to inflation. What are the causes of inflation and what can policy makers do to reign it in? Who gets most hurt by inflation? How do international experiences differ from those in the United States?

Three UVA economists will address these issues and answer questions in a hybrid event, “Inflation: Causes, Effects, and Cures,” to be held Friday, April 29 in Monroe Hall 130 at 5:00 pm.

Speakers include

Zach Bethune, associate professor of economics, College of Arts and Sciences

Eric Leeper, professor of economics, College of Arts and Sciences

Felipe Saffie, assistant professor of business administration, Darden School
