In fact, in the model proposed the interest rate rule is derived by inverting money demand and, as we have seen, there is evidence that such a rule does not fit the behaviour of the ECB from 1999 onwards. This again raises the question of whether we can use data from the period 1980–99 unreservedly. The problem becomes more serious here. Core inflation, as measured by Bagliano, Golinelli and Morana, has a trend. The data for the period 1980–99 show a downward trend for inflation which stands at a level of about 10% at the beginning of the sample and ends up at a level just above 2% at the end of the sample.

In particular, evaluation of the rule can only be done if it is embedded into a dynamic model of the economy as changes in the interest-rate instrument that deviate from historical experience will drive inflation and output away from their historical paths as well. Rather than build such a model (or borrow one) I will simply look at the performance of the ESCB since its inception. 2 plot GDP growth and inflation in the euro area.

Each country has a weight equal to the share of its consumption in total EMU consumption. The adopted target was that HICP inflation should not exceed 2%. Is the HICP targeting process a good conveyor of the information relevant to the final goal of price stability?
