The difference is whether the central bank intends to remove the effects of past disturbances on the price level. For instance, a central bank with a price level target would after a supply shock aim for a period of deflation, whereas a zero inflation central bank would aim to disinflate. 34 The welfare benefits of long-term nominal contracting have not yet been analyzed in any serious way. The importance of being able to contract in nominal terms for 100 years, as was done in the nineteenth century, is probably very small.

No central bank has succeeded in producing long-run price stability in the postwar period, and it is not clear that the goal justifies the likely costs. These costs could be mitigated by reducing the costs of price level uncertainty, for instance through the introduction of indexed bonds, in ways that increase the costs of inflation for the government.

The differential fell to 55 basis points at one point in the fall of 1992 but subsequently rose to more than 100 basis points again. 32. The constitutional referendum in the fall of 1992 played an important role in this regard. 33. See Barro and Gordon (1983), and Persson and Tabellini (1993).
