Sample text

An integrated EC central bank with a sub-structure of dependent national central banks which assume more or less technical functions seems desirable to the extent that coordination of monetary policy within a more loose institutional framework faces systematic instability or rising consensus costs. With now 12 EC member countries and probably more to join in the distant future, an ever-present varying EC election calendar implies the problem that nationally responsible central banks would burden consensual decision-making with factors derived from short-term political pressure.

Increased competition on the supply side of the loan market will create endogenous pressure to reduce reserve requirements in the countries with the 26 highest (net) ratios, namely Italy, Spain and Portugal (FolkensLandau/Mathieson 1989; Reither 1990). Seigniorage will consequently reduce, if higher inflation rates do not raise it again, where the non-indexation of tax schemes is an additional and probably highly relevant factor which invites inflationary policies. The ultimate test on commitment to low inflation rates in all EC countries might indeed be the willingness to adopt tax indexation schemes.

With multinational and transnational industries and banking, the supranationalization of policy might indeed become a strategy of policy-makers to regain some policy autonomy and effectiveness. The institutional setting for the envisaged EC central bank would be decisive for the success or failure of the supranational system. IT the new institution would represent less policy failure (and, as regards prudential supervision, less financial market failure) than the sum of current national policy failures, the supranational monetary regime could be deemed a success.
