‘ResearchToday!’ is a research seminar series that shows the width of research in the Business School, and is a forum to foster the collaboration and exchange among interested colleagues. We meet weekly during teaching term times.

This week's seminar presentation will be given by Senior lecturer Dr Christina Anderl. To give you a taste of the session, a brief abstract can be found below:

Central bank credibility is considered to be of upmost importance for the success of the inflation targeting regime. The increasing popularity of inflation targeting as a monetary policy framework requires an evaluation of its wider implications on the economy compared to alternative monetary regimes. Using three different measures of central bank credibility I study their influence on the exchange rate parities for five inflation targeting countries, and comparatively for three non-targeting countries. It is found that the exchange rate is quicker to adjust to international goods and asset market equilibria when central bank credibility is high and when the central bank is expected to implement policies which adhere closer to the inflation target. This effect is more pronounced in inflation targeting countries than in non-targeting countries, therefore lending support to the importance of central bank credibility for the wider success of the inflation targeting regime.
