Fiscal transparency from central banks’ perspective: off-budget activities and government asset funds
This paper reviews how central banks in emerging market countries assess fiscal positions, and discusses two aspects of fiscal transparency that have recently gained importance from central banks’ perspective: off-budget activities and special fiscal funds. By increasing uncertainty about the true fiscal position of the government, these activities are of concern both to central banks that set monetary policy on their own, taking fiscal policy as given, and to those that have adopted an institutional framework for coordinating monetary and fiscal policies.
