Course Description

Central banks are not commercial banks. They do not seek profits. Nor do they face the same financial constraints as private institutions. In practical terms, this means that most central banks could lose enough money to drive their equity negative, and still continue to function completely successfully. For most central banks, one would have to go far to construct a scenario under which they might have to compromise their policy objectives in order to keep paying their bills. This course aims at presenting the accounting principles and mechanisms and their implementation at Central Banks.
