Inflation variability between central bank's preferences and the structure of the economy: A note

Economic Modelling, 2011, vol. 28, issue 1, 630-636
The current paper seeks to build a theoretical explanation to understand why many central banks failed to reduce inflation variability despite having the desire. The result proves that central bank's preferences are a necessary condition but not sufficient to guarantee lower inflation variability. The structure of the economy and the types of the shocks are significant factors.
