based on Minky´s idea of financial fragility, the chapter shows that the loss of credibility of official statistical data on prices and inflation may prevent the development of financial instruments that extend the maturity of financial obligations and reduce the uncertainty and the cost of capital. These problems undermine investment and, consequently, jeopardize economic growth.

Keywords:   financial fragility, credibility, uncertainty, economic growth, inflation statistics
