We analyse the consistency betweenfiscal deficits and inflation targets and assessPoland's domestic and foreign debt management policies and the impactof the Brady debt reduction agreement on therelationship between fiscal deficits and inflation. We also assessthe impact of financial sector measures on seignioragerevenue and the sustainability of the low inflation strategy. Suchpolicies are shown to have a direct impact on thesustainability of inflation targets.
