The purpose of this project is to unite two areas of central bank design. Both of these areas consider the time inconsistency problem faced by central banks. That is, a monetary authority who make monetary policy in order to maximize national welfare will "overinflate" despite the fact that such overinflation is suboptimal. The first strand of literature considered a model of central bank reputation. This literature showed that when there is asymmetric information about the central bank's will to "fight inflation," then a weak central bank will be concerned about this reputation and as a result, will be willing to control inflation to some extent in order to enhance its reputation. A second strand of literature was to suppose that the government could appoint a "conservative" central banker to optimally control inflation. We argue that both of these strands of literature are important and as a result, they need to be studied within a single framework.
