Abstract

This paper documents Norges Bank’s role in the long transition period from a fixed exchange rate regime to inflation targeting in Norway. It is shown that the Bank’s leadership and influential department leaders wanted more exchange rate flexibility from early on. However, due to the division of responsibility of economic policy in Norway – where a stable exchange rate was important with regards to incomes policy – this was met with resistance.
