“One good thing to remember about both monetary and fiscal policy is that both are long-term games. When the central bank applies a policy, it builds reputation. Reputation is important for a stable environment and credible policies. The same thing is true about fiscal policy. Stable environment on the fiscal side is equally important for investments decisions, for example, in regards to the energy crisis. So, don’t get lost in the day-to-day changes and think about the long-term outlook,” says Jaroslav.
