NEW Global Monetary Policy Tracker

Benn Steil, Senior Fellow and Director of International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations, emails:

Dear Mr. Wenzel,

Emma Smith and I have created a new web-based tool for tracking monetary policy developments around the world.

The CFR Global Monetary Policy Tracker is an innovative visual interactive that allows you to see quickly and easily what the world’s central banks are doing at any point in time, individually and in aggregate. All on one screen.

Who is tightening policy? Who is loosening policy? And what is the policy stance of the world as a whole? Just look at the color-coded map!  You can also find inflation, growth, and other data just by tapping or mousing over individual countries.

We trust you’ll find the Tracker both informative and enjoyable
All best regards,

Benn Steil


  1. Holy Cow RW, emails from CFR directors?

    I'm not sure whether to be afraid or hopeful, but regardless that's a fascinating development- assuming the information can be trusted.
