Summary This paper considers the theoretical and methodological foundations of modeling price index for central banks targeting that is the mean of preventing significant fluctuations in monetary policy which are the reason for many macroeconomic mistakes. In accordance with the model, the transition from the index of consumer prices to the index of stable prices when targeting inflation reduces the variance of output. The choice of the central banks around the world to use the stable prices index for the effective monitoring and targeting of inflation is an important factor in the context of achieving the highest degree of stability in economic activity.
