As Perry Mehrling (2005) has reminded us, Fischer Black had been there before him, but where Black’s work seemed to run quite counter to contemporary policy practice, Woodford’s now blends seamlessly into it. The practical problems of implementing Woodford’s recommendations that stem from the difficulty of actually measuring the output gap and estimating the neutral value of the interest rate are worth mentioning here. So far these have not led inflation targeters into serious policy mistakes but one wonders just how long their luck will hold out.

Tex] Ref: 4892 MAYES: Open Market Operations and Financial Markets Page: 31 14–31 Comment on Laidler Jan Toporowski There are few economists who could have given such a stylish and perceptive analysis of current monetary theory and policy as David Laidler has. If I pick out particular insights, there is a risk of losing the consistency in the chapter, based on the position on monetary theory and policy that David Laidler has maintained over years. His response to adverse and inconvenient argument and empirical evidence, by extending his scholarship and the sophistication of his analysis, is an example to us all.

Forty years ago, for example, the mainstream choice was a monetary order firmly based on a national currency, with the central bank’s principal task being to support the elected government’s fiscal policy. When the latter was expansionary, as it often was, the effects of keeping interest rates low so as not to interfere with its effects led to central banks collecting seigniorage on behalf of the political authorities. 18 Indeed, for as long as governments have found themselves short of revenue, they have looked to seigniorage, and it is hard to think of any significant inflationary episode in recorded history that was not underlain by monetary expansion driven by fiscal requirements, and of any successful monetary stabilization that was not supported by budgetary reforms.
