Written by economics commentator and former economics editor Chris Giles, it will be an essential guide to money, interest rates, inflation and what central banks are thinking, says the Financial Times.
Chris Giles said: “Central banks provide the foundations of a modern economy, striving to maintain stable prices and ensure we avoid financial crises. There isn't a more important building block for growth and prosperity. The newsletter will keep you informed about what central bankers are doing, thinking and saying. These are not always the same.”
The newsletter is aimed at professionals who need to understand monetary policy. It will primarily focus on the four big central banks – the European Central Bank, Federal Reserve, Bank of England and Bank of Japan – but will also cover other central banks from around the world. It will highlight other central banking stories from the FT and elsewhere, and will complement two of the FT’s existing newsletters: Martin Sandbu’s Free Lunch and Alan Beattie’s Trade Secrets.
This week’s first edition is free to read for all users, here.
‘Chris Giles on Central Banks’ is available to premium FT subscribers, and will arrive in inboxes at 12.30pm UK time every Tuesday.
