Ever wondered what monetary policy is? Or how the key interest rate affects inflation? Play ECONOMIA and find out how it works.
Your goal: Keep inflation low and stable at just under 2%. Your tool: the key interest rate.
€conomia can now be played on the move. Simply download the app and off you go. The goal and functionalities remain the same as in the browser version, but with your iPad or iPhone you can take your monetary policy decisions literally anywhere!
Projections and history of money growth, now both longer, will help you even more in anticipating future developments. Careful though: your score will suffer more than before if inflation varies too much.
ECONOMIA is a game that explains, in a simplified way, how monetary policy works. The game does not necessarily reflect the views of the European Central Bank or any other central bank in the euro area.
Monetary policy concerns the decisions taken by a central bank to influence the cost and availability of money in an economy.
