Central-Bank Independence and Monetary Policy
During the Great Recession, central banks went well beyond their normal operations and provided liquidity in unlimited amounts, in foreign currency and to foreign banks. Central bank cooperation took the form of a swap network, and amounted to an episode of global monetary policy. However, though bank cooperation will continue to contribute to global governance, the swap network should not be made permanent and given an institutional basis to provide international lending of last resort. Swaps are a monetary policy tool and should continue to be decided on by central banks like all other monetary policy tools,to avoid impinging on their independence, which a difficult historical process has shown to be the best basis for price stability. In comments appended to this Policy Contribution, Edwin Truman, Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics, concludes in favour of making the swap network permanent, while William Dudley, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, stresses the importance of central banks around the world being able to coordinate closely so that there can be a viable, credible backstop on a global basis. What connections exist between central banks and climate change, and what are the resulting implications? What did we learn from the recent monetary policy normalisation experiences of Sweden, the United States and the United Kingdom?
This chapter addresses the issue of central-bank independence and its implication for monetary policy. If this chapter had been written twenty years ago, the presentation would have been very different. But the world of today is very different from that of the past. There is a new understanding about the role that governments should play in the economic system, about the role that central banks should play in the economic policy-making process, about the importance of price stability, about the limitations of exploiting the alleged tradeoff between inflation and unemployment for the generation of sustainable growth, and about the domestic and international transmission mechanisms of economic policies. In the new world there is a growing recognition that central-bank independence is a key ingredient in the design of the institutional structure necessary for the successful attainment of the goals of economic policy in general and price stability in particular.
