Abstract

Four factors affect the effectiveness of monetary policy, three of which are exogenous, fiscal dominance, dollarization and global risks; one is endogenous, monetary policy framework that integrates strategy, tactics and governance of monetary policy. We show that the factors that undermine the effectiveness of the Central bank of Congo (BCC) are much more exogenous. However, the monetary policy framework needs to be rethought. For a lasting effectiveness of the BCC’s monetary policy, it would be necessary to put in place sustainable fiscal discipline, serious de-dollarization measures, and economic growth policies that strengthen resilience.
