Ismihan, M. and Gulcin Ozkan, F. (2004) Does central bank independence lower inflation? Economics Letters, 84 (3). pp. 305-309. ISSN 0165-1765
This paper provides a potential explanation for the recent findings of no significant relationship between central bank independence (CBI) and lower inflation. We argue that although CBI delivers lower inflation in the short-term, it may reduce the scope for productivity enhancing public investment and so harm future growth potential. We also argue that the effects on growth make CBI less likely to achieve lower inflation in the long-term.
