Call For Papers

Conference date
29 Apr 2022

Sejong, Republic of Korea (Virtual Meeting Only)

Korea Development Institute School of Public Policy and Management (KDI School) is delighted to invite professors, policymakers, and experts to submit papers under the theme of Inflation and Deflation in Asia. KDI School welcomes the submission of high-quality original research papers. Selected papers will be presented during the Conference, which will be held on April 29, 2022 in Korea and online. The conference will be organized in collaboration with the East Asia Institute of the Ludwigshafen University of Business and Society in Germany.

Outline of the Conference:
Ever since the financial crisis of 2008/2009, the world’s leading economies have been struggling with deflationary tendencies. Inflation on the other hand, even in the face of unprecedented monetary easing by central banks, appeared like an “extinct volcano”. This gave even rise to an alternative branch of economic thought called “New Monetary Theory”, which claims that monetary stability can be maintained, even if high and further increasing public debt is routinely supported by monetary easing.

Recently, however, the possibility of a return of inflation has come into focus. One driver is the COVID-19 pandemic, which causes supply side restrictions on the one hand side and pent-up demand on the other. Furthermore, researchers like Charles Goodhart and Manoj Pradhan have pointed out that trends in demographic development and a less free environment in global trade also support inflationary pressures. A return of sustained inflation would certainly be a “game changer” in international economic policy, as central banks would be unable to fight the trend and still continue to support public debt sustainability by government bond buying programs.

Countries in Asia have their own distinctive experience with the issue of inflation and deflation. Japan for example is struggling with deflation ever since the 1990s with no imminent change in sight, whereas China, Korea, and the ASEAN countries have often faced the need to arrest inflationary pressures during their development. General price-stability issues in Asia may furthermore arise from the fact that many countries in the region have pegged their currency against the US Dollar or a basket of other currencies. Focusses on a certain country in the region are welcome as well as comparative perspectives.

Submission Details:
All papers must be written and presented in English. Original complete papers should be submitted to the conference organizer (Ms. Dabin Song) through email at by March 18, 2022.
