MNB Bulletin October 2012Print
The Magyar Nemzeti Bank attaches great importance to making central bank analyses on various current economic and financial trends of general interest available to the wider public. The October 2012 issue of the MNB Bulletin provides an overview of households’ perceptions about the security of the various payment methods; discusses the latest developments in the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy; presents the ‘early warning’ system designed for use in macroprudential regulation by the central bank; takes an account of developments in external borrowing by the individual sectors; and analyses the debates about fiscal adjustment within the European Union. In addition, the current issue contains a report on the 11th Macroeconomic Research Workshop hosted by the Magyar Nemzeti Bank jointly with the CEPR and, for the first time, features an interview with Fabio Canova, professor at European University Institute, Florence.
