Development Viewpoint N.72 has been published

15 April 2012

The Centre for Development Policy and Research is pleased to announce the publication of Development Viewpoint #72 “Progressive Monetary Policy in Argentina: A Return to Democratic Control”. The author, John Weeks, Professorial Research Associate, CDPR, SOAS, comments on the macroeconomic benefits of a new 2012 law in Argentina that mandates the central bank to pursue a growth mandate (instead of stubbornly adhering to a deflationary inflation target) and brings the central bank under more democratic oversight (instead of allowing ‘economic experts’ complete independence to set national monetary policy).
