Central bank transparency and committee deliberation

Stephen Hansen, Michael McMahon, Andrea Prat, 20 June 2014

The European Central Bank currently publishes no direct information on its internal policy debates, and will only release minutes with a 30-year lag. The Bank of England releases minutes soon after meetings, but withholds transcripts.
