Inflation targeting: dead or alive?

  • BARBALAU, Adelina Georgiana
Registered author(s):

    The present paper investigates how the global financial crisis has prompted the need to revise monetary policy in general and inflation targeting in particular, with the final purpose of establishing whether the crisis has rendered inflation targeting obsolete or has only strengthened its position as the central banking orthodoxy of our days. Departing from an outline of inflation targeting fundamentals and a brief history of monetary policy, the paper explores the merits of and criticism on inflation targeting from a theoretical as well as practical perspective. Finally, conclusions are drawn upon the analysis and prospects for the future, including proposed successors of inflation targeting, are briefly explored.
