A comprehensive classification of monetary policy frameworks

This site is host to a new dataset with a comprehensive classification of monetary policy frameworks, prepared by David Cobham, professor of economics at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK (with many thanks to Alexander Cobham for his help in setting up the website).

The current dataset covers 60 advanced and emerging economies. Over time the dataset will be expanded to cover some 100 developing economies, starting with those from the Middle East and North Africa and those in Latin America.

This site provides an overview of the approach, including the original working paper; the results for individual countries; and the classification system used.

Researchers are encouraged to use the dataset in any relevant work, and are requested to keep us informed so that we can post links and commentary.
