A monetary policy paradox

Author

Listed:
  • Charles T. Carlstrom

Abstract

An exploration of the paradoxical link between interest rates and inflation in the short versus the long run, showing that it may be more difficult for a central bank to achieve credibility--and hence a less costly transition to a stable price environment--without first making the monetary authorities accountable for publicly stated multiyear objectives for the price level.
