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