Example text

The third principle that fiscal policy should be aligned with monetary policy provides another reason that price stability should be the overriding, 36 CENTRAL-BANK INDEPENDENCE long-run goals of monetary policy. As McCallum (1995) has emphasized, "unpleasant monetarist arithmetic" arises only if the fiscal authorities are the first mover. In other words if the fiscal authorities are the dominant player and so can move first, thus setting fiscal policy exogenously knowing that the monetary authorities will be forced to accommodate their policies to maintain the long-run government budget constraint, then fiscal policy will determine the inflation rate.

Should the central bank independently announce its commitment to the price-stability goal, or would it be better to have this commitment be mandated by legislation? Here the distinction between goal independence and instrument independence made by Debelle and Fischer (1994) and Fischer (1994) is quite useful. Goal independence is the ability of the central bank to set its own goals for monetary policy, while instrument independence is the ability of the central bank to independently set the instruments of monetary policy to achieve the goals.

Since the European Parliament is currently significantly less powerful than the national parliaments of the countries that make up the Monetary Union, scrutiny by that organization would not influence ECB behavior as strongly as would oversight by a more powerful body (such as a consortium of national parliaments) or the individual parliaments themselves.
