Stiglitz on inflation targeting

Joe Stiglitz argues it's not a good idea for developing countries to adopt inflation targeting. I agree, because food consumption accounts for a large chunk of personal disposable income in poor countries. Institutions-wise, central banks in developing countries are far from independent and have no credibility anyway. So Stiglitz shouldn't worry too much about it.
