Policy rules were the subject of much research in the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s, but in the following years, until recently, there was a lull. Now there’s a big pickup, whether at conferences, in research papers, or in central bank publications, including whole new sections on rules in comparison with actual policy. This lecture documents these developments, and offers possible explanations, including revealed preference by policymakers, the need to deal with the effective lower bound on the interest rate, disappointment with monetary policy in some countries leading to the global financial crisis, threats of legislation, and concerns about people kibitzing about policy without a monetary framework.

Kiribati is one of the most remote of the Pacific islands, but also has one of the largest and most productive fisheries. With the introduction of the Vessel Day Scheme in 2012 leading to a massive increase in fishing license revenue, never before has Kiribati had such opportunity to engage proactively in its own development using its own resources. Between 2012 and 2015 there was an unprecedented expansion of government revenue, and in 2016 to 2019 a similarly unprecedented expansion of government expenditure. For the first time in its history, the Kiribati government, rather than a foreign development partner, is the largest financier of public capital investment.
This survey paper explores the recent trends and future prospects for the Kiribati economy. In particular, the paper looks closely at the role that public spending has played in recent years and its likely role in the future, as well as other areas of public reform that go beyond the national budget. With a recommendation of Least Developed Country graduation a surety at the next triennial review by the international community, and climate change presenting a fundamental threat to communities at home, what does Kiribati need to do to secure its future?
