Abstract

In this comment, we answer the question posed in Svensson's (2000) paper 'Does the P* Model Provide any Rationale for Monetary Targeting?'- in contrast to him -- in the affirmative. We argue that a strategy of monetary targeting can be rationalized within the P* framework. Furthermore, we demonstrate that money growth targeting is a special form of inflation forecast targeting based on a 'limited' information set. In contrast to 'full information' inflation forecast targeting, monetary growth targeting is likely to be more robust under changing conditions of the real world.
