I would like to begin by thanking you for the opportunity once again to come here and address the Swedish Economic Association. It is always a great pleasure to have this opportunity. When I was here last year I talked about how the Riksbank's three main areas – monetary policy, financial stability and payments – are interrelated. This year I intend to focus on monetary policy and the Swedish inflation-targeting policy, which will soon be 30 years old, but I will also address some aspects of financial stability and payments that are linked to monetary policy.
