Inflation targeting needs to be supplemented by an economic growth target so that central banks will not adopt monetary policy which results in stagnation. There is no guarantee that the economy will move towards full employment by itself when the inflation rate is kept between two to three per cent. Monetary policy does not have a comparative advantage in achieving price stability. Svensson's proposal that the Keynesian interest rate channel and the Phillips curve can be exploited by the monetary authority for the purpose of inflation targeting may not work. The R in NAIRU should stand for "range" not "rate".
