Inflation Targeting: Provisional Results


  • Cerna, Silviu

    (Faculty of Economy and Business Administration, West University, Timisoara)


Inflation targeting 􀂱 monetary policy framework that requires the central bank to achieve a low inflation 􀂱 has contributed to price stability in industrialized countries. As well as the other developing countries, ex communist countries have also tried to apply this strategy, which was susceptible to increase monetary policy transparency and to determine authorities to make necessary reforms in order to pass from a planned to a market economy. In Romania, inflation targeting has contributed, to a large extent, to price increase smoothening, without affecting economic growth. Knowing the factors that have determined this unquestionable success allows for not only understanding the Romanian transition process, but also draw some useful conclusions in view of the necessary actions for adopting the euro.
