In the article posted on the website of the Brookings Institute, Patel also said “It may be construed as seeking to absolve the monetary authority from pursuing low and stable inflation as even a primary—let alone an overriding or dominant—objective in the hierarchy of macroeconomic goals.” (Click on graphic)
