Setting the repo rate – a look behind the scenes
Most people probably realise that a lot of hard work goes into deciding what the repo rate should be. But how is this actually done and who is involved in the process?
The monetary base – the Riksbank changes statistical definition

There is thus reason to adjust the definition and the reporting of the monetary base in such a way as to include all relevant parts.
