Example text

The Res have put emphasis on limiting net credit expansion of the banking system, on curtailing credit to Government and on increasing policy-controlled interest rates. The interrelationship between these monetary targets and structural changes, however, has been rather loose and not sufficiently emphasized in the policy strategy. This has led to either a low degree of effectiveness in policy action to the extent that macroeconomic balance was not reached even though the credit targets were achieved or it has brought about perverse effects.

Furthermore, all RCs which were net energy importers were hit by the increase of the energy prices to world market levels. Besides macroeconomic tasks, there were tasks related to the need for an economic development strategy or a higher output growth strategy than had existed in the 1980s. All RCs recognised that a reorientation of development should result from the new incentives and penalties offered by competition in an open market. Nevertheless, among RC authorities, doubts existed regarding the autonomous capacity of domestic economic forces to trigger a strong output recovery in the short-term once these forces were allowed to operate in a free market environment.

Furthermore, there is not enough evidence to indicate that progress towards lower inflation has compromised output recovery. The chart shows the relationship between inflation and GDP growth for the six Res under consideration. From this it can be inferred that a significant inverse correlation exists between the five variables, whereby GDP recovers following reductions in inflation. Among the reasons for the limited success in macrostabilization, it is necessary to explore whether the instruments which were used to this end were up to the task.
