The Introduction of Money Supply Targets

  • Tim Congdon

Abstract

With the defeat of inflation a top political priority in all the major economies, there has been a world-wide shift towards a style of macroeconomic management based on money supply control. Money supply targets, declared in advance and articulated clearly as a prime policy objective, are an expression of this shift. Although a relative newcomer in Britain, the practice of monetary targetry seems to have become firmly established.
