Should Central Banks Target CPI Futures?

Author

Listed:
  • Cowen, Tyler

Abstract

The author considers recent proposals that the government should attempt to stabilize the nominal value of a CPI futures contract. Under a variety of conditions, arbitrageurs will break the peg and bankrupt the central bank, the central bank ends up in a gaming problem with private traders, or the regime collapses into discretion. Copyright 1997 by Ohio State University Press.
