A experiência internacional de regimes de metas de inflação: uma análise com painel dinâmico [International experience in inflation targeting regimes: an analysis with a dynamic panel]
This paper uses a growth model with dynamic panel techniques in order to investigate how (and if) the institutional architecture of inflation targeting regimes affects the growth performance of the countries that adopt this kind of monetary policy. The sample used to build the panel consists of 23 countries that officially adopted the inflation targeting regime. The Arellano and Bond (1991) methodology is used to estimate the parameters of the dynamic growth model. The results support the view that the adoption of headline inflation indices, since it is a index of strong credibility; the definition of a convergence horizon for target inflation larger than a year; and the capability of central banks to achieve the target inflation have positive and important effects over growth performance of selected countries.
