Abstract

I contemplate the Taylor rule as a benchmark for setting monetary policy in some Accession Countries to the EU in the 1998-2003 period. I find that countries with a floating exchange rate regime (the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary) moved short-term interest rates as suggested by the Taylor rule and in a similar way the ECB is doing. On the other hand, the Taylor rule predicts worse interest rate behaviour in the Slovak Republic where inflation targeting is not adopted yet.
