Sample text

As soon becomes clear in looking at the genre set of the Communications Strategy, it comprises a discursive fabric of temporally and functionally linked written texts and spoken performances— all mediated by a complex network of digital technologies and built environments. A related issue here is the blurred distinction between written and oral discourse within certain individual genres. How are we to categorize, for example, the Governor’s speeches? In these spoken performances, the Governor reads, verbatim and in front of a live audience, a written text that has been carefully crafted through collaboration and document cycling involving a number of people over a significant period of time.

Below I examine four types of genre knowledge observed in my research. The senior members of the Bank staff involved in making monetary-policy decisions share a common understanding of the two broad, closely linked goals of the activity of the Communications Strategy and its genre set: first, to establish public understanding of and support for the Bank’s monetary policy, and second, to contribute to the effectiveness of the policy by reducing public uncertainly about the Bank’s thinking, goals, and intentions.

Through effective communications. The other angle in this is one of policy outcomes. And that gets into the whole issue of trying to minimize public uncertainty, in terms of what the Bank is up to with monetary policy and why—trying to influence public expectations of where we intend to go with monetary policy, whether it be [the expectations of] households, business, or financial markets, so that these expectations are in line with our goals for monetary policy. And again, you achieve that kind of policy outcome through transparency and effective communications.
