Accountability and Transparency in Canada's Monetary Policy

Remarks Gordon Thiessen Metropolitan Halifax Chamber of Commerce Halifax, Nova Scotia
Public sector institutions have been undergoing significant changes over the past decade. One of the most important changes has been the move to greater accountability.

Because of this, central banks must always look ahead and must put in place today the monetary conditions that are needed to help keep the economy on a sustainable path down the road. By 'sustainable' I mean a situation where economic growth and job creation are not at risk from rising inflation.
