On HNBlog, employees of the Croatian National Bank publish original professional content, and the views expressed therein may, but do not necessarily reflect the official views of the CNB. Comments are primarily intended for enhancing the professional and general public’s understanding of original analyses put forward by central bank employees. They may contain summaries of published scientific papers, upcoming papers (e.g. CNB Working Papers and Surveys) or they may serve as a platform for up-to-date public communication of results obtained as part of interesting ad hoc research projects, studies, unofficial assessments of the condition of the economy, or terms related to CNB’s operations sparking current interest. Examples of such a form of communication by central bank analysts may be found in the blogs of French central bank economists.
