Working Papers from HAL

Abstract: This article aims to consolidate strategic importance of communication in managing expectations and stabilizing the congolese economy. We propose a reinforcement in terms of communication, on the one hand by using not only french as a language, but also the national languages, such as Lingala, and on the other hand by using a maximum of television broadcasts on dedication from the congolese central bank to stabilize the economy. These instruments could restore confidence and allow the bank central of the Congo to better manage exchange rate and inflation expectations. In addition, there are reportedly no studies in the Democratic Republic of the Congo related to the influence of central bank communication on expectations. Thus, this analysis contributes to the Central bank theoretical literature. In prospect a development of a new communication index of the Bank central of the Congo is desirable in order to reinforce the effectiveness of the monetary policy.
