We show that such contracts enable central bankers to influence inflation expectations more effectively, thus facilitating more successful stabilization of current inflation. Inflation forecast contracts improve the accuracy of inflation forecasts, but have adverse consequences for output. On balance, paying central bankers according to their forecasting performance improves welfare. Optimal inflation forecast contracts stipulate high rewards for accurate forecasts.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2015-02-05T12:01:03Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Gersbach, Hans</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Inflation forecast contracts</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Hahn, Volker</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2015-02-05T12:01:03Z</dcterms:available> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
