The conduct of monetary policy has undergone notable changes in India and across the world as economies and markets evolved and policymakers gained greater insights into how economic agents interact in a complex economic system, he said while delivering a lecture at the National Defence College here.

“As monetary policy is an art of managing expectations, central banks have to make continual efforts to shape and anchor market expectations, not just through pronouncements and actions but also through a constant refinement of their communication strategies to ensure the desired societal outcomes,” he said.

The communication works both ways — while too much communication can confuse the market, too little may keep it guessing about the central bank’s policy intent, he added.

The central bank also recognise that communication needs to be backed by commensurate actions to build credibility and instil wider confidence in policies. —
