Bank of England: Target 2.0 Competition

11 Dec 2015

In November, 4 of our best economics students took part in the Target 2.0 competition. This is a national competition set up by the Bank of England, who invite a select group of schools to give a presentation on whether they should raise interest rates or not. Our school was represented by Sheldon Lobo (team captain), Michael Priest, Jonathan Derouet and Kieran Walsh.  They worked together to understand and present a clear monetary policy plan to 3 members of the Bank of England committee who directly advise Mark Carney, the Governor of the Bank. They did a huge amount of work in their own time and gave a very professional presentation. Afterwards, they took questions from the panel where, although challenging, they all gave a solid account of themselves. Although we did not get through to the next round the boys were a credit to themselves and the school.
