Abstract

Given that several countries have adopted inflation targeting, and that the main objective of this regime is to function as a guide for the inflationary expectations of economic agents, transparency in the handling of the monetary policy becomes a prerequisite for the success of this regime. This paper presents a survey of the evolution in the theoretical and empirical research concerning transparency in handling monetary policy. The main conclusion suggests that transparency must be understood as a mechanism that, if used in correctly, can favor a rise in credibility in the handling of monetary policy.
