Comments on: Central bank independence is a bit like marriage: Israel’s Fischer http://blogs.reuters.com/macroscope/2013/04/18/central-bank-independence-is-a-bit-like-marriage-israels-fischer/ Shining a light on the dismal science Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:39:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: DarylWhite http://blogs.reuters.com/macroscope/2013/04/18/central-bank-independence-is-a-bit-like-marriage-israels-fischer/comment-page-1/#comment-18281 Mon, 22 Apr 2013 07:27:49 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/macroscope/?p=9922#comment-18281 It strikes me that Fischer is an expert in marrying polar opposites. After all, he’s the one who wrote the theory that Keynesian economics and free market theories were compatible.
