Making monetary policy fit for today and beyond: the ECB strategy review
Our inflation objective and how price changes are measured, employment, climate change… These are just some of the topics we’ve looked at during our strategy review, the outcome of which we revealed in July.
In this episode of The ECB Podcast, our host Katie Ranger discusses the review with Chief Economist Philip R. Lane.
The views expressed are those of the speakers and not necessarily those of the European Central Bank.

Employment and the strategy review
Why the employment situation is important for our monetary policy, and how our decisions impact jobs.
