To the Next Level: From Gold Standard to Inflation Targets - to Price Stability?

William B.P. Robson ()

C.D. Howe Institute Commentary, 2009, issue 285

Abstract: Can Canada improve on its successful monetary order based on a 2 percent inflation target when it expires in 2011? Yes – better price measures, a lower inflation or price-level target, and stronger accountability could better preserve the value of Canadians’ money.
