Paul Dalziel

New Zealand was the first country in modern times to adopt a formal inflation target, introduced as part of its monetary disinflationary programme in the late 1980s. Initially the Reserve Bank of New Zealand implemented monetary policy through targeting the monetary base before shifting to targeting the banking system’s base interest rate in 1999. During this period, the author was contributing to the horizontalist debate in the post-Keynesian literature sparked by Basil Moore’s 1988 book. This chapter brings together Dalziel’s theoretical contributions and New Zealand’s policy experience to show how post-Keynesian monetary theory remains highly relevant for current policy debates.
