Abstract

In this paper we investigate the impact of Central Bank Independence (CBI) on average inflation and inflation variability for 22 transition economies over the time period of 1991-2003. We devise a new index to represent actual CBI rather then legislative independence. The empirical evidence suggests that Central Bank Independence lowers both average inflation and inflation variability.
