This paper considers the choice and trade-offs that Nigeria's economic policymaker face when deciding on the simultaneous combination of monetary policy exchange rate management, and financial openness policies to adopt- the monetary policy trilemma. The paper finds empirical evidence of the monetary policy trilemma for Nigeria, implying that there is indeed a tradeoff among monetary independence, exchange rate stability and financial integration.
