Abstract

El presente trabajo intenta cuestionar la idea, común en la literatura sobre transparencia, de que los anuncios de los bancos centrales son veraces per se. El documento presenta un modelo sencillo que ilustra el por qué el hacedor de política monetaria podría comportarse estratégicamente al publicar información. El análisis empírico de los pronósticos de inflación publicados por seis bancos centrales considerados muy transparentes, aunque preliminar, es consistente con las implicaciones del modelo y, por lo tanto, con la presencia de comportamiento estratégico en estos pronósticos.
