Median Voter Preferences, Central Bank Independence and Conservatis
Working Papers from Banca Italia - Servizio di Studi
This paper studies how the independence and conservatism of a central bankrelate to the structure and stability of median voter preferences. This is done by means of a model of endogenous delegation in which an opportunistic policy-maker chooses the monetary regime (independence and conservatism) to maximise the welfare of median voter.
