Inflation: Driver and Dynamics (IDD)

The “Inflation: Drivers and Dynamics” (IDD) Program brings together researchers with interests in inflation and its underlying determinants. The goal of the program is to draw upon the expertise of academics and policymakers to improve our understanding of the  inflationary process, its welfare consequences and business cycle properties, and statistical methods that offer greater forecast accuracy.  A current focus of the program lies in the analysis of surveys to inform micro-founded models of consumer and firm behavior which are related to inflation, such as the formation of inflation expectations and the roles that inflation expectations play in the monetary transmission process.
