Construction d'une règle monétaire pour la "zone euro"

[fre] Construction d'une règle monétaire pour la « zone euro ». . La littérature a montré l'efficacité des règles de politique monétaire articulées autour d'objectifs d'inflation. Or, la BCE, qui n'a pour seul objectif que la stabilité des prix, a confirmé sa confiance dans la surveillance des agrégats monétaires. Cet article montre par simulation d'un petit modèle économétrique que les objectifs d'inflation sont une stratégie que devrait suivre la BCE. De tels objectifs peuvent même être complétés par une règle activiste qui peut être alors utilisée comme un outil d'évaluation et d'encadrement de la politique d'une BCE qui échappe actuel­lement à toute forme de contrôle. [eng] Designing a monetary policy rule for euroland. . The literature has shown the efficiency of monetary policy rules articulated around inflation targets. However, the ECB, which has for only objective the price stability, has confirmed its confidence in the monitoring of monetary aggregates. This article shows by simulation of a small econometric model that inflation targets are a strategy that should be followed by the ECB. Such objectives can even be completed by an activist rule that can be then used as a tool of assessing and framing the policy of an ECB which currently escapes all shape of control.
