On Friday, May 24, before a full house, Czech National Bank governor Jiří Rusnok gave a clear thumb’s up to the country’s economic performance, and discussed what could threaten the crown’s stability.
A majority in the room felt the Czech labor shortage was the biggest risk; Governor Rusnok warned that the combination of global trade disputes could be problematic. The governor also answered questions about housing prices, cryptocurrencies, and the sectoral taxes. In these times of many known unknowns and unknown unknowns, our finance committee was comforted by the close alignment in views between the bank and business community.
