Accommodating policy

This paper aims to enhance the understanding of China's monetary policy rule since the mid-1990s, focusing on the role of inflation.It investigates the rule followed by the People's Bank of China (PBo C) by considering both the structural economic transformation of China and its evolving monetary policy framework.India’s opposition as well as contended support to the sanctions cannot be understood without taking into account Washington’s efforts to garner New Delhi’s cooperation.Interactions between the two governments on the Iranian issue are not an exercise of persuasion-resistance and subsequent compliance, as media reports seemingly suggest.Arguing that New Delhi does not support “economic sanctions that do not have the approval of the United Nations Security Council,” India has extended its sympathy to other countries facing sanctions as well.Nonetheless, during the reign of both, the United Progressive Alliance and NDA governments, New Delhi did not cease to adapt to geopolitical changes and conformed to international obligations.The seal ban was imposed out of the public concern over the cruel manner in which seals are hunted and killed, whereas the IC exception was made to protect the traditional lifestyle of indigenous peoples and the MRM exception accommodated the need for sustainable management of marine resources.

Monetary policy is the process by which the monetary authority of a country, like the central bank or currency board, controls the supply of money, often targeting an inflation rate or interest rate to ensure price stability and general trust in the currency.

In the last decade India has firmly maintained its opposition to unilateral sanctions on several occasions.

Recently, however, when White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest acknowledged India’s “substantial sacrifice” in implementing U. sanctions against Iran, New Delhi’s resistance to unilateral sanctions appeared shallow.

Our newly constructed monthly composite discrete monetary policy index (MPI), which combines price, quantity and administrative instruments, shows a change in style towards smoother but more contractionary policy moves from 2002 onwards.

The estimation of a dynamic discrete-choice model à la Monokroussos (2011) implies that, from this point onwards, the conduct of monetary policy has been characterised by implicit inflation targeting.
