Monetary policy in the 2008-2009 recession

The recession that began with a cyclical peak in December 2007 originated in a combination of real shocks because of a fall in housing wealth and a fall in real income from an increase in energy prices. The most common explanation for the intensification of the recession that began in the late summer of 2008 is the propagation of these shocks through dysfunction in credit markets. The alternative explanation offered in this article emphasizes propagation through contractionary monetary policy. The first explanation stresses the importance of credit-market interventions (credit policy). The ...

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 ...

Monetary policy and real economic growth

An examination of the connections between monetary policy changes, shifts in aggregate spending, and adjustments to production, showing that although a central bank may periodically exploit the connection between short-term monetary expansions and real economic growth, frequent attempts may ultimately distort the allocation of resources from productive uses to protective enterprises and result in proportionally higher inflation.

Working Paper
Monetary policy in a financial crisis

What are the economic effects of an interest rate cut when an economy is in the midst of a financial crisis? Under what conditions will a cut stimulate output and employment, and raise welfare? Under which will it have the opposite effects? The authors answer these questions in a general class of open-economy models, modeling a financial crisis as a time when collateral constraints are suddenly binding. They find that when there are frictions in adjusting the level of output in the traded goods sector and the rate at which that output can be used in other parts of the economy, a cut in the ...

Working Paper
Monetary policy in a small open economy with a preference for robustness

We use robust control techniques to study the effects of model uncertainty on monetary policy in an estimated, semi-structural, small-open-economy model of the U.K. Compared to the closed economy, the presence of an exchange rate channel for monetary policy not only produces new trade-offs for monetary policy, but it also introduces an additional source of specification errors. We find that exchange rate shocks are an important contributor to volatility in the model, and that the exchange rate equation is particularly vulnerable to model misspecification, along with the equation for domestic ...
