No 04/2001, IWP Discussion Paper Series from Institute for Economic Policy, Cologne, Germany

Abstract: Monetary history is characterised by crisis and reform. The paper is dedicated to an explanation of what makes monetary reforms successful. A cross--sectional exonometric analysis is schosen to deal wht this problem. It is based on a standard macroeconomic model of commitment and credibility. As the dependent variable, we calculate a post-reform inflation rate. the exogenous variables are the degree of legal commitment and the constraining influence of institutions. The paper allows for the conclusion that monetray commitment, the consideration of institutional constraints and abstinence from the money press are crucial for the success of a monetary reform.
