Grades are based on an “A” to “F” scale for success in areas such as inflation control, economic growth goals, currency stability and interest rate management, where “A” represents excellent performance down through “F” for outright failure.
Global Finance has published Central Banker Report Cards annually since 1994, which grades the central bank governors of 94 key countries.
