Inflation, stagflation, relative prices, and imperfect information by Alex Cukierman( Book )

26 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book surveys the imperfect-information approach to inflation and its real effects. Two types of informational limitation are considered. One involves situations in which individuals have asymmetric information about the current general price level and consequently confuse relative and aggregate changes in prices. The other considers situations in which individuals cannot distinguish permanent from transitory changes as soon as they occur, creating a temporary but persistent confusion between such changes. The author presents the arguments within the context of the recent re-evaluations by economists of previously established views concerning inflation and its interaction with real phenomena

Do central banks have precautionary demands for expansions and for price stability? : theory and evidence by Alex Cukierman( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper analyses the impact of asymmetric preferences with respect to inflation and output by policymakers on interest-rate reaction functions and test for their existence. A modified New Keynesian framework which makes it possible to identify the dominant type of asymmetry is developed and related to the precautionary demand of policymakers for expansions and for low inflation. Using data for four G7 economies, the paper shows that, except for Germany, nonlinear and asymmetric behaviour is present. A main finding, for the US, is that after credibility-building and disinflation have been established, the monetary authority develops a greater precautionary demand for output expansions than for low inflation. This may generate a new type of inflation bias. Conversely, where, as is the case in the UK, credibility-building is still a concern for the authorities, managing the business cycle is dominated by concerns of the monetary authorities to keep inflation expectations low

Choosing the width of exchange rate bands : credibility vs. flexibility by Alex Cukierman( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to provide a framework for the analysis of policy-makers' choices regarding unilateral exchange rate bands. Exchange rate bands are viewed as the outcome of an optimization problem by a policy-maker whose objective function weighs the level of the real exchange rate against the level and variability of the real exchange rate. The analysis endogenizes policy decisions about realignments and about the width of the band. Conditions are developed for the case in which optimal band width widens in response to a decrease in policy-makers' commitment reputation, an increase in the cost of reneging on the existing band, and an increase in the variance of fundamental shocks
