The Institute for Politics and Society is holding a debate called The Tradition of Czech Monetary Policy.
We will soon celebrate twenty-five years of separate Czech currency. At our short afternoon debate consisting of two hourly panels, we recall its birth, separation and how the inflation, convertibility and stability of banks proved to be the benchmark against the currencies of neighboring states and other states in the region. We will also touch on the evaluation of the CNB’s teams and work. In the second panel we will focus on the recent past (currency intervention), the present and the future of the Czech crown. Experts on the subject will come closer to the advantages and disadvantages that would bring us into the eurozone.
