In this paper we analyze the impact of economic and institutional (ECB decision rules) asymmetries on the effectiveness of monetarypolicy in Euroland. We consider a model where asymmetric shocks and divergent propagation of shocks in output and inflation are potential causes of tensions within the ECB concerning the conduct of common monetary (interest rate) policy. Welfare implications of the alternative decision procedures are discussed.
