Professor Christopher Sims from Princeton University was a guest at the Oxford-Indiana Macroeconomic Policy Conference in July 2018. The Nobel Prize-winning economist explained in his keynote address 'How to worry about government debt' that a central bank cannot maintain stable inflation unless it has fiscal backing. Sustained, unbacked fiscal expansion must eventually lead to inflation, regardless of monetary policy. The presentation generated a lively discussion in the audience of policymakers, academics and market participants. Updated slides from Professor Sims are available online. The full programme from the Oxford-Indiana conference is available online.
