The Australian money market and the operations of the Reserve Bank of Australia: a comparative analysis

This article provides a comparative analysis of central bank operating procedures in Australia and the United States. It also examines the effect that the structure of overnight money markets, reserve requirements, and central bank lending procedures have on monetary control in both countries. Evidently the Australian financial structure is such that an interest rate instrument provides superior control of money, a result that may not hold in the United States.

The Fed's anti-inflationary strategy: is it adequate?

Inflation remains a potential longer-run threat to the health of the economy despite the progress made in reducing the inflation rate in recent years. The Fed must have a credible strategy in place to meet this threat. As Richmond Fed president Robert P. Black notes in this speech to business economists, a strategy centered around targeting monetary aggregates may still be the best approach over time, even after account is taken of the technical problems encountered in using aggregates as targets in the 1980s. Black argues that the substitution of a rule for the present discretionary approach ...

The case for rules in the conduct of monetary policy: a concrete example

Journal Article
Oil shocks, monetary policy, and economic activity

Various reasons have been given to explain downturns in U.S. economic activity since World War II. Romer and Romer (1989) argued that these recessions were primarily associated with monetary contractions, while Hamilton (1983) and others attributed them to oil price increases. We investigate these competing hypotheses and find that when measures of oil prices are included, the Romers measure of monetary policy does not significantly explain economic downturns. However, alternative measures of monetary policy, specifically the federal funds rate the spread between the ten-year Treasury rate ...
