DP509 Monetary Policy in France

The discussion of monetary policy in France, which is intended for a chapter in a general handbook on monetary policy that will cover a number of other countries as well, begins with the early postwar period and carries the story up to the present. A separate section analyses the new framework for monetary policy that was brought into place with the wave of reforms starting in 1984.
