Capital for Development. Easy and Accessible
September 9th 2021, 16:15-17:45
The debate about monetary policy in Russia continues unabated. Discourse on the expansion of targets - anchors (inflation, economic growth, and employment) is complemented by the debates on the importance of having a reserve currency status for softening monetary policy.

Nevertheless, due to the economy's structure and the adopted monetary policy strategy, Russia is tightening the policy even in the fight against non-monetary inflation, sacrificing the goals of economic growth.

Most importantly, the current consensus does not imply an increase in access to capital in Russia, a key factor for economic growth.

How to improve the situation with the access to capital in the country? What should be changed in the monetary policy and stock market regulation? We propose to discuss these and other questions during the session.
