Abstract

Over recent decades it has become the norm for central banks to be made formally independent from governments and political actors. Laurenz Ennser-Jedenastik writes that despite this insulation from the world of politics, the political affiliations and ideological positions of central bank governors have still played a significant role in their appointments and removal from office. Outlining the results of a study across 30 European countries, he shows that central bank governors who are more closely aligned with a country’s government are less likely to be removed from office than other governors.
