    Abstract

    Recently, weak central bank financial positions, especially of emerging economies, have brought into the public spotlight whether it will constrain or obstruct the policy implementation in the long run or not. The country case studies and statistical performance showed that the central bank capital erosion does not directly relate to the policy effectiveness, but it creates the vulnerabilities to the monetary policy process. The key factor helping achieve the policy objectives, even with the losses or negative capital is “central bank credibility”. The policy choices to reduce such vulnerabilities are also discussed in this paper.
