My mission is to assist central banks in better serving their economies and thus their people. I have over twenty-five years of experience in central banking both as a practitioner including being a governor and as a consultant for international organizations working in dozens of central banks. During that time, I have gained valuable insights into how central banks operate and how to improve them.
What I do?
As an ex-governor my areas of expertise are mostly in monetary and exchange rate policies as well as organization and management of central banks. Due to several factors like global financial crisis, changes in social attitudes, digitalization of finance central banks are faced with multiple challenges. If they want to respond to new tasks they need to change.
What I do?
However, changing a central bank is no small feat as they are de facto monopolistic organizations. Based on my intense work with central banks I can offer a specific and unorthodox view on where they should be heading and how to achieve their new goals.
My moto is: Helping people by whispering to central banks.
