Abstract

Monthly data concerning the inflation expectations of financial analysts in the Czech Republic exhibit a tendency for bias and ineffectiveness. This paper analyses, from a macroeconomic perspective, whether the surveyed data include any relevant macroeconomic information, specifically, whether the surveyed expectations correspond to market expectations considered in macroeconomic analysis and models. Using a methodology based on a simple Fisher rule, it is found that the difference between the surveyed and market inflation expectations is not statistically significant. From this perspective, it is concluded the surveyed inflation expectations bear economically relevant information.
