Economics and Statistics
Inflation targeting policy is aimed to stabilize the price level in the economy. The main target of the policy is to achieve a low and constant inflation. This paper analyzes two developing countries that have passed on this policy more than 10 years ago. We empirically evaluated the monetary policy in Mexico and Brazil, using the Taylor rule and time-series data of the main macroeconomic indicators. Based on the models, we analyzed the characteristics of Mexican and Brazil politics, as well as short-term forecasts were built. Also analyzed the transition to a new monetary policy in Russia. And short-term forecast was made based on the inflation targeting policy trends.
