Inflation in advanced economies has risen to the highest rate in a decade. This burst has sparked fears of a shift to a high inflation regime. However, even so many believe that higher inflation might not prolong at all. We have invited two speakers who will discuss this topic from different angles. After the presentations an interactive panel discussion will follow with plenty of room for your questions.
