The Goal of the Center

The goal of the Center is to improve the understanding of policymakers, researchers, and the public about inflation and the factors that influence its behavior. The Center seeks to do this through a combination of expanded research, enhanced external communications detailed below, and a more visible annual, rather than biennial, research conference series on inflation. In addition, an advisory council of leading experts from the United States and abroad will integrate external perspectives into our efforts to make the Center a leading resource for readers whose interests range from being informed about inflation developments to learning about recent theoretical and empirical work analyzing the inflation process. A preview of some of what’s to come:


  • More research and analyses focused on inflation via our Economic Commentary series, research working papers, and shorter descriptive pieces

External communications


  • The next installment of the Cleveland Fed’s Inflation: Drivers and Dynamics conference series will be held May 16–17, 2019—see the conference page for more information.
  • The Center will sponsor a session on inflation at the 2019 meeting of the Central Bank Research Association (CEBRA) being held at Columbia University on July 19–20, 2019—see the conference website for more information.
  • The Center will be helping the Central Bank Research Association (CEBRA) to organize a session on inflation and price setting at the 2020 ASSA annual meeting to be held January 3-5, 2020, in San Diego. Submission details and the call for papers are available through the CEBRA website. The submission deadline is May 15, 2019.
