      It is not easy to ascertain the extent to which changes in macroeconomic performance are due to adoption of IT alone. But, all in all, there is fairly compelling evidence for some countries under examination that inflation has become less volatile and persistent in the post IT period, interest rates have become less volatile and inflation expectations more responsive to monetary policy moves. It is clear in retrospect that our attempts last spring to provide guidance about the potential timing and pace of tapering confused market participants. Bank-by-bank ceilings and interest rate controls on commercial bank deposit and lending rates that had been imposed in the initial transition phase were also eliminated. But the interest spread, defined as the difference at the end of the year between the rates on short-term bank loans in domestic currency and rates on deposits was, over the same period, one of the highest in the transition countries. The ECB, therefore, plans on a prolonged period of "ample monetary stimulus.

      A second conclusion is that the exchange rate has a significant effect on inflation during all time periods examined. But, all in all, there is fairly compelling evidence for some countries under examination that inflation has become less volatile and persistent in the post IT period, interest rates have become less volatile and inflation expectations more responsive to monetary policy moves. In all countries under examination, fully fledged IT was adopted at different points in time over the last ten years or so as the underlying framework for the conduct of monetary policy. Because the conditions necessary for liftoff are well-specified, market participants should be able to think right along with policymakers, adjusting their views about the prospects for normalization in response to the incoming data.

      Can monetary policy work in transition? While progress has been made in strengthening the system, problems remain, particularly in the balance-sheet positions of several private banks. The Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank are, therefore, maintaining an exceptionally easy policy stance, while envisaging gradually rising credit costs to reflect a an expected improvement of cyclical conditions, b fiscal policy changes, c trade balance effects on growth and employment, and d vastly different political circumstances in the U. Simply put, we failed to act both early enough and decisively enough to stem the credit excesses that spawned the financial crisis and the Great Recession. The results show that the exchange rate has played a significant role in the transmission mechanism, suggesting that the behavior of this variable should be carefully watched even under an inflation targeting regime. Still, it seems that these numbers don't look reassuring to those at the Fed fretting about the inflationary impact of "tight labor markets.
