Economic Theories on Inflation Targeting - Dictionary of Arguments
Mause I 233
Inflation Targeting/Monetary Policy/Economic Theories: in many countries there is a shift away from monetary policy strategies taking explicit interim targets into account. (VsTaylor, John Brian, VsMcCallum, Bennett).
Solution: in inflation targeting, central banks orientate their monetary policy directly towards inflation trends instead.
VsInflation Targeting: the central banks run the risk that their monetary policy measures may take effect too late and have a procyclical effect due to time lags. Against this background, central banks must gear their monetary policy interventions to the expected inflation potential, i.e. their strategy is based on a control of the forecast inflation rate.
As soon as the assumed inflation potential deviates from the formulated inflation target, monetary policy measures are required.
Problem: the credibility of monetary policy depends (...) crucially on the determination of the forecast inflation rate.
Solution: a combination with a Taylor-type monetary policy rule is proposed.
