€CONOMIA - The Monetary Policy Game
Have you ever wondered what exactly monetary policy is? Or how the key interest rate affects inflation? €CONOMIA will help you understand these basics of central banking. Your goal is to keep inflation low, at just under 2%, and stable. The interest rate decisions you take can achieve that - but they can also cause inflation to slow down or to rise sharply. Achieving a balance between the two extremes is not easy.
€CONOMIA is a game that explains, in a simplified way, how monetary policy works. The game does not necessarily reflect the views of the European Central Bank or any other central bank in the euro area.
