Key Features

  • Presents extensive coverage of monetary policy theories with an eye toward questions raised by the recent financial crisis
  • Explores the ingredients, properties, and implications of models that inform monetary policy
  • Observes changes in the formulation of monetary policies over the last 25 years

Description

What are the goals of monetary policy and how are they transmitted?

Top scholars summarize recent evidence on the roles of money in the economy, the effects of information, and the growing importance of nonbank financial institutions. Their investigations lead to questions about standard presumptions about the rationality of asset markets and renewed interest in fiscal-monetary connections.  Stopping short of advocating conclusions about the ideal conduct of policy, the authors focus instead on analytical methods and the changing interactions among the ingredients and properties that inform monetary models. The influences between economic performance and monetary policy regimes can be both grand and muted, and this volume clarifies the present state of this continually evolving relationship.

Readership

Graduate students through professionals worldwide working in all fields of economics and finance, and particularly in subfields related to labor economics.

Quotes and reviews

This, the companion volume provides the counterpoint to the Monetary Analysis  writings in Volume 3A. Here the theme of macroeconomic engineering confronting politico-economic and socio-economic reality comes to the fore. The politics of monetary policy, inflation targeting, the clash between monetary and fiscal policy are all addressed. The question of robustness in macroeconomic policy making is considered. This volume provides a valuable source for those concerned with increasing our understanding of the links between theory and practice
