The Transparency of Central Bank Preferences


Volker Hahn


University of Konstanz

January 2006


Abstract:     
We examine whether the transparency of the weight central banks attach to employment goals compared to inflation targets is beneficial. We show that society prefers transparency if it sufficiently values the employment target, whereas it prefers opacity if it estimates inflation as sufficiently important.
