Announcements and Credibility of Monetary Policy
An infinitely repeated monetary policy game a la R. Barro and D. Gordon (1983) is considered. Before the game starts the government announces a policy rule. If there is a slight probability that government is honest and a slight probability that the government makes mistakes, then a sufficiently patient government will have average loss close to its commitment loss in all sequentially rational equilibria of the infinitely repeated game.
