Who Should Control Monetary Policy? Politicians or the Central Bank?

Wed, Feb 18, 2015, 12:15 pm

Don Brash was governor of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) from 1988 until 2002. During his tenure as governor, the RBNZ pioneered a then-unique relationship between government and central bank, became the first central bank to embark on formal inflation targeting, and developed a new approach to banking supervision. Since retiring as governor, he was a member of the New Zealand Parliament for five years (including three years as leader of the National Party), and now holds a number of directorships. He has a PhD in economics from the Australian National University.
