Central banks vs populists tweet storm: ignore or fight

National Bank of Ukraine and Bank of Poland organised  their Annual Research Conference (HT: CentralBanking.com).

There was a panel discussion on  Central banks vs populists: ignore or fight. The panelists were:

Olga Stankova, International Monetary Fund
Emma Murphy, Bank of England
Yuriy Gorodnichenko, University of California, Berkeley
Dmytro Sologub, National Bank of Ukraine
Miroslav Singer, Generali CEE Holding
The video of the panel is on youtube.
Miroslav Singer, former Governor of Czech Central Bank says he would rather fight and ignore 🙂 Prof Yuriy Gorodnichenko of University of California Berkeley says fight between the two has been there for a long time.
The last question asked to panelists was how to fight a tweetstorm by say Trump? All said you cannot fight the storm as President has many more followers. One can atmost clarify facts and not take it personally.
Lots of other interesting questions.
