Abstract

For Romania, the shift from monetary targeting toward inflation targeting was done under the influences of following events: - The existing pressure coming from refinancing the public debt and from the necessity to remain in certain boundary with the budgetary deficit. - NBR assigned monetary control and liquidity management functions on the mechanism of minimum required reserves. - Romanian strategy was deeply hurt by the low development of its financial markets, and the low level of monetization. - A precondition of potential success in the case of inflation targeting was fulfilled - the improvement of taxes collection and the reduction of money laundry. - The important amounts of quantitative increases in Foreign Direct Investment (yearly Euro 4 billion), and also in the rest of M2’s components, forced the necessity of a new strategy based mainly on non-monetary aggregates
