Abstract

Policymakers are often reluctant to grant independence to the agencies that regulate and supervise the financial sector because of the fear that these agencies, with their wide-ranging responsibilities and powers, could become a law unto themselves. This pamphlet describes mechanisms for making regulatory agencies accountable not only to the government but also to the industry they supervise and the public at large, with examples from a range of countries.

Abstract

Why are policymakers reluctant to grant independence to the agencies that regulate and supervise the financial sector, despite mounting empirical evidence that independence makes for a healthier financial system?

Abstract

Un nombre croissant de pays adoptent des régimes de taux de change flexible car la flexibilité assure une meilleure protection contre les chocs externes et donne plus d'indépendance à la politique monétaire. Ailleurs, la transition se fait parfois de façon désordonnée, avec une forte dépréciation de la monnaie lors d'une crise. Quel que soit le motif de l'adoption d'un taux de change flexible, la réussite de la transition dépend de la bonne gestion de plusieurs aspects institutionnels et opérationnels. Les auteurs de ce numéro des Dossiers économiques décrivent les éléments nécessaires pour passer un régime flexible, ainsi que la cadence et l'ordre idéal de ces éléments dans différentes circonstances.
