About the event

We are honoured to have Dr. John Greenwood to speak on the heat topic of assumed connections between the inflation and the aftermath of Covid-19.  As a monetary economist, Dr. Greenwood has a unique perspective on the Covid Pandemic and the subsequent inflation. In this lecture, he will discuss why the emerging inflation is not related with the Pandemic but consistently a monetary and local phenomenon. He will also explain the reason for why countries such as China, Japan or Switzerland are not landing a significant inflation while they all suffered the same disruptions back in the time.

The Speaker

Based in London, Dr. John Greenwood is the founder and Chief Economist of International Monetary Monitor Ltd, a macroeconomic consulting firm.

As editor of Asian Monetary Monitor in 1983, he proposed a currency board scheme for stabilising the Hong Kong dollar. Dr. Greenwood was a director of the Hong Kong Futures Exchange Clearing Corporation for four years until 1991, and in 1992 became a council member of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong, a position he held for twelve months. In that same year, he was an economic adviser to the Hong Kong Government. He has been a member of the Committee on Currency Board Operations of the HKMA since 1998.
