Resilience: three lessons from the financial crisis - speech by Dave Ramsden


30th May 2019

In this speech Dave Ramsden talks about resilience. He argues that the financial crisis taught us three lessons: first, that the past is not always a good guide to the future; second, that there is more to resilience than just being responsive to the narrow economic cycle; and third, that policy needs to prepare for the unexpected. And he argues that the Bank’s approach to Brexit has been guided by all three of these lessons.
