Financial Architecture and the Monetary Transmission Mechanism in Tanzania
In the vast majority of low-income countries, financing and political constraints have traditionally impaired the usefulness of fiscal policy as a short-run stabilization device. Indeed, it is widely recognized that fiscal policy in such countries has very often tended to be pro-cyclical. While fiscal dominance has also impaired the effectiveness of monetary policy, this situation has been changing, as many low-income countries have increased the independence of their central banks. These newly-independent central banks have taken center stage in the conduct of short-run macroeconomic stabilization in such countries, not just because they are in a position to exploit the traditional flexibility advantage of monetary policy, but also because they tend to be the primary locus of macroeconomic expertise in low-income countries.
