    A Look at China’s Central Bank

    How does Chinese monetary policy really work? Tsinghua University professor Patrick Chovanec will discuss the main tools that the People’s Bank of China uses to manage money and credit in the Chinese economy, and how they differ – in subtle but important ways - from the conventional tools used by Western central banks. In particular, he will reveal how China was able to finance last year’s unprecedented lending boom, and what the implications are for current policy on growth and inflation.
