A Proposal to End Inflation

Abstract

This paper suggests how the price level could be stabilized by the Bank of England adopting a rule to peg the price of a new financial instrument. This new instrument would be similar but not identical to a price-index futures contract. The paper explains how the scheme would work, assesses potential objections, and discusses how the Bank of England could enhance the credibility of its commitment to the rule. It also compares the scheme with the alternatives of targeting the monetary growth rate or targeting the price level. Copyright 1994 by Royal Economic Society.
