Dr György Surányi: “It will be a bitter realisation to learn that central banks aren’t omnipotent”

What will be the Russia-Ukraine war’s effect on the already high Hungarian inflation rate? Why is it a bad idea to keep utility prices low with government measures? In the latest episode of the Future Talks podcast Dr György Surányi – economist, university professor and former president of the Central Bank of Hungary (MNB) – answered Szilvia Krizsó’s questions. He explained that without the utility cost reduction, the level of inflation would be way above 10% in Hungary. The economist also spoke about the drawbacks of the USA’s financial measures to mitigate the effects of the pandemic, cryptocurrencies and the role central banks will play in the future.
