Global Finance Magazine Grades the World's Top Central Bankers 2012

New York, August 23, 2012 - Global Finance magazine has named the heads of the Central  Banks of six countries as the World's Best Central  Bankers over the past year. The "Central  Banker Report Card" feature, published annually by Global Finance since 1994, grades Central  Bank Governors of 50 key countries (and the ECB) on an "A" to "F" scale for success in areas such as inflation control, economic growth goals, currency stability and interest rate management. ("A" represents an excellent performance down through "F" for outright failure.) Subjective criteria also apply. Global Finance publisher Joseph Giarraputo says: "During one of the toughest years on record, the World's Central  Bankers were tested as never before. Every year, we assess the determination of Central  Bankers to stand up to political interference, and their efforts at influencing their governments on such issues as spending and economic openness to foreign investment and financial services. " For editorial information please contact: Andrea Fiano, editor, email:  afiano@gfmag.com Those Central  Bankers scoring an "A" in the report published in the October issue of  Global Finance include:
