The debate about central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) is gradually evolving from a high level of abstraction to more specific consideration of concrete projects. The Bank of England has made a significant contribution in the form of a consultation paper published in February 2023. This episode of Financial Statements starts from that basis to discuss the broader policy questions raised by CBDCs.
Joining this episode of Financial Statements are:
Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE)
Senior Manager, Central Bank Digital Currency Unit, Bank of England
Governor, Danish National Bank
