Luba Petersen featured in SFU Scholarly Impact of the Week series
Associate professor Luba Petersen’s research paper on central bank communication was recently featured by Simon Fraser University (SFU) as part of their Scholarly Impact of the Week series.
Updated weekly, SFU's Scholarly Impact of the Week is selected by the Office of the Vice-President, Research and International to celebrate scholarly milestones and research impacts from across the SFU research community.
Co-authored with Bank of Canada economist Oleksiy Kryvtsov, the paper explored the effects of monetary policy and central bank communication to stabilize and guide markets. The paper suggests that central banks can improve public trust and comprehension by communicating with relatable language.
The paper, Central Bank Communication That Works: Lessons from Lab Experiments, was published in the Journal of Monetary Economics.
