Editors: Ben S. Bernanke[and three others].

Publisher:  Princeton University Press

Year: 1999

This strategy also increases policymakers’ accountability for inflation performance and can accommodate flexible, even “discretionary,” monetary policy actions without sacrificing central banks’ credibility. The authors examine how well variants of this approach have worked in nine countries: Germany and Switzerland (which employ a money-focused form of inflation targeting), New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Israel, Spain, and Australia…More…
