Conducting policy with feedback rules, It is commonly assumed that policy is con-, ducted with feedback rules, in particular, interest, rate feedback rules. One measure of the health of the Social Security system is the difference between the market value of the trust fund and the present value of benefits accrued to date. For, it implies that the same economic fundamentals, are compatible with many values for the macro, economic variables. This paper examines how recent econometric policy evaluation research on monetary policy rules can be applied in a practical policymaking environment. Monetarists feel that the price level is determined, especially in the long run, primarily by monetary movements. can be verified the linearized version is, There may be institutions that we have ignored, in the model, which can be used to eliminate some, of these “undesirable” equilibria. The monetary policies have been developed and implemented by the Bank of Lao PDR (BOL). This paper shows that these uniqueness conditions are economically unreasonable. The traditional actuarial approach – the approach currently used by the Social Security Administration in generating its most widely cited numbers - ignores risk and instead simply discounts “expected†future flows back to the present using a risk-free rate. Money plays a decidedly secondary or transmission role in aggregate demand. Keynesian beliefs center on the role of spending, especially investment and government spending, as the major determinant of output. Obstfeld, Maurice and Kenneth Rogoff, 1983, “Speculative Hyperinflations in Maximizing. Since there are less equi, librium equations than equilibrium variables there, are many equilibria unless the government. Simi, inal interest rate is set exogenously in every date, and state, and the money supply is set exoge, Thus, we have the following result when policy, is conducted with constant functions: in general, if, money supply is determined exogenously in every, date and state, and if interest rates are also deter, mined exogenously in the initial period, as well as, tions and prices can be determined uniquely, interest rates in every state, the initial money sup, Chart 2 illustrates this result for the example of, section 3. ...

The economy, which consists of many industries and heterogeneous households whose preferences differ with respect to the value of leisure, experiences both supply and demand shocks. Monetary policy refers to the measure which the central bank of a country takes in controlling the money and credit supply in the country with a view to achieving certain specific economic objectives. crease in the nominal interest rate is higher. iar with monetary policy and its tools.

At first sight it would seem that it would be, preferable that a central bank would follow a T, “undesirable” equilibria, hyperinflations or hyper, deflations would not be possible. Two case studies—German unification and the 1990 oil-price shock—that had a bearing on the operation of monetary policy in recent years are used to illustrate how such a policy rule might work in practice.

Thus a constant growth rate rule for Using a version of the New Keynesian model with heterogeneous agents we study the issue of usefulness of central bank forecasts of their policy instruments. If the interest rate is the chosen, instrument it is not described how the associated, money supply is determined or vice versa; if the, money supply is the instrument it is not explained, It is confirmed both theoretically and empiri, cally that the demand for real money depends on, the nominal interest rate and on the real output, level.

A strong currency is considered to be one that is valuable, and this manifests itself when comparing its value to another currency. Thus, the description of the instruments of monetary policy in China incorporates both the instruments of the central bank and other non-central bank instruments. Monetary policy instruments are broadly classified as Direct, to refer to the authorities direct controlling mechanism of the monetary variables, and indirect . Budget: The budget of a nation is a useful instrument to assess the fluctuations in an economy. This rule closely approximates Federal Reserve policy during the past several years. The ad hoc model is one in which there is long-run neutrality, since it incorporates the aggregate supply schedule proposed by Lucas.

We first show that for any policy under the transparent regime there exists a policy under the opaque regime that delivers the same allocation.

Candidates those who are having a passion to work in a banking sector should be aware of the RBI monetary policy. Monetary policy is conducted by the Federal Reserve System, the nation’s central bank, and it influences demand mainly by raising and lowering short-term interest rates. These are bank rate, open market operations and changes in reserve requirements usually referred to as quantitative credit controls. We show that in, general if the monetary authority uses just one in, strument, no matter which, there will be a large, multiplicity of equilibria. 3 0 obj monetary policy if monetary policy is used pre-emptively.

Developing the proper adjustment for risk requires a careful examination of the stream of future benefits. We thank participants in seminars at the Banco de Portugal, the ECB, Society for Economic Dy-namics Annual Meeting in Budapest and 20th Annual Congress of the European Economic Association in Amsterdam. We discuss various ways this can be done and the implications for financial markets. The decision to cut rates in 2019 was controversial. When the monetary policy is conducted, with a money feedback rule in order to have a, unique equilibrium, it is necessary to determine, Under the assumption that the fiscal policy was, endogenous, a monetary policy that uses just one, monetary policy instrument, either the nominal in, inate the multiplicity of equilibria. x��\Yo�F~7���Gj1j�/H` �$A`�`f���(�;�P�����r���:ٖ�j�类���"/~j�r�O���/~�|2/���������_��O�}Y�]����w��i�����>^��E,¿�� The classic Taylor rule, Taylor (1993), is one such example, setting the in, terest rate as a function of the current estimates of, the output gap and inflation.

Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. Comparing our results to those emphasized in the fiscal theory of the price level, it becomes clear that a key consideration for price-level determination is whether fiscal policy is specified as an exogenous sequence of primary surpluses/deficits or, alternatively, as an exogenous sequence of secondary surpluses/deficits. non-decreasing function of the inflation rate, the price level is indeterminate for both low and high values of the inflation elasticity of the feedback rule and determinate for intermediate values. Finally, we now assume without loss of generality that the, utility function is separable and linear in con, sumption. Under what conditions does a policy deliver a unique competitive equilibrium? These conditions are given by (3), (9), (10), tion determines the growth rate of money between, a state and any of its subsequent states. The primary objectives of monetary policies are the management of inflation or unemployment, and maintenance of currency exchange ratesFixed vs. Pegged Exchange RatesForeign currency exchange rates measure one currency's strength relative to another.

Most monetarists believe that the best route towards economic stabilization is a constant rate of growth of the money supply and counter-cyclical monetary policy should be discouraged. eliminated reserve requirements and have added new instruments to the menu, a similar experience could be replicated in Jamaica. Monetary Policy Instruments _____ The Bank mainly uses four monetary policy instruments, namely; the discount rate, reserve requirement, liquidity requirement and open market operations. The instruments of monetary policy are of two types: first, quantitative, general or indirect; and second, qualitative, selective or direct. In general, there are, still an infinity of equilibria that pass these types, two types of equilibrium. Effectively, market valuation uses a discount rate that incorporates a risk premium. based on our recent research, the main references being Adão, This paper benefited from comments by Marta Abreu, José, Brandão de Brito, José António Machado, Maximiano Pinheiro, utility functions in consumption and real balances, with con, vertibility of money and no public debt. We can use the argument used before. The objective of monetary policy in Papua New Guinea (PNG), as stipulated in the Central Banking Act 2000 (Section 7) is to achieve and maintain price stability.

Perspectives on U.S. Monetary Policy Tools and Instruments* James D. Hamilton University of California at San Diego May 9, 2019 Revised: June 14, 2019 ABSTRACT The Federal Reserve characterizes its current policy decisions in terms of targets for the fed funds rate and the size of its balance sheet. Section 5 reveals which policy, variables need to be used as instruments in order, to have uniqueness of the equilibrium in the sto. For instance, in, some models an hyperinflation can be eliminated, if the central bank has sufficient resources and can, commit to buy back its currency if the price level, this issue here. endobj In this environment it is feasible to undo both the cash in advance and the price setting restrictions. mined by the government intertemporal budget constraint. This provides a measure of degrees of, policy relevance. In fact, Denmark is an exception in that it has maintained a basically unchanged fixed-exchange-rate policy since 1982. Lo, cal determinacy means that in the neighbourhood. 2.0 Historical Overview of Monetary Policy Implementation in Jamaica © 2008-2020 ResearchGate GmbH. In this article, we survey different approaches to monetary policy implementation. No matter what nominal interest rate, the central bank would choose, if people expected, inflation above the rational expectations equilib, rium, that would result in lower perceived real in-, terest rate, which would generate a higher de-, mand for current goods, leading to an even higher, inflation, which in turn would lead to an even, lower real interest rate, stimulating more the econ-, Unlike Friedman (1968), in the recent literature, agents are taken as being rational. chastic version of the model. o�!�����M�җؔJq8�l��WG�ڼ+>���Ao�R�d���@q��v[����)[+�iBP�MQck��՜���_�rH4�F�~���셗ר!SD��CQ��y�����Pi�� I�ij 3�=M�Lj�(yu�իܤ����@� ̵9{�(�}�6��i z���F��e=������I�X�M�Wv�����`���_'рʮ����`����� The idea that a common monetary policy in a monetary union imposes costs when compared with independent policies at the country level is largely widespread in the literature.

This action changes the reserve amount the banks have on hand. These models can be closed with the assumption that the economy's equilibrium lies on the unique convergent path (the saddlepath). But since the exponent is a constant smaller, left hand side of (16) smaller than the right hand, equilibria which are infinite in number are either, associated with inflation converging with proba. ����#�����7[���8G�z�Bه�J��PxD��N�;X��wb�Qj��Л�={e�Nr$SR�Z�[�9�4�xv(e���]�p���Ԥ� ��޾a��q1�|u�����婸_� ���ֵ���]Ӷͳ��~�M�Y� �=”BI@�mM�>q �贋�k�h�]�c�_�����0ݍʧ�UH;��="_-�>��f�9]��5�.T��ڪ�3hʘTEUYݰA��rR�/p�����˺��I>s��S�6�^�TaIkW�O��j�C,\��T�YNF�w|�\���Sq�Ar��n�é���W��mA��#����jx�tu�:�B?+� The fed funds rate today is essentially an All the quantitative methods affect the entire credit market in the same direction.

This booklet provides an introduction to U.S. monetary policy as it is currently conducted by answering a series of questions: In other words, in general the opaque regime delivers a higher level of welfare. In, other words, we assume that the fiscal policy is en, dogenous in the sense that whatever are the. On the other, hand, if all the policy variables, taxes, money sup, plies, interest rates and debt are chosen exoge, There are many ways in which the degrees of, freedom can be fulfilled. RBI Monetary Policy is the important banking awareness topic for banks exams. This conclusion, is not correct because whenever there is multiplic-, ity of equilibria it may be possible that sunspots, can cause large fluctuations in inflation. Instruments of Monetary Policy: The instruments of monetary policy are the same as instruments of credit control at the disposal of a central bank. macroeconomic imbalances, divided government, and lack of popular support for steps to stabilize and restructure the economy. The required monetary policy measures to maintain the projected targets are discussed at the Monetary Policy Implementation Committee (MPIC) meetings. Everyone should know how the monetary authority of India controls the monetary policies in India. The instruments of monetary policy used by the Since claims on accrued benefits are not currently traded in financial markets, we cannot directly observe a market value. Which out of the following is/are included in second schedule of Reserve Bank of India a) Nationalised Banks. Local determinacy means, as we said before, that in the neighbourhood of an equilibrium there, is no other equilibrium. As we emphasized in our discussion in the policy memorandum, problems include issues of inefficient economic structures, distorted prices, large. Moreover, non-central bank policy instruments are in place, which are not controlled by the central bank but have a direct influence on the final targets of monetary policy. They affect the level of aggregate demand through the supply of money, cost of money and availability of credit. Read full-text. This result is known as the fiscal theory of the price level. The views expressed in this paper are the authors and not necessarily those of Banco de Portugal. To conduct monetary policy, some monetary variables which the Central Bank controls are adjusted-a monetary aggregate, an interest rate or the exchange rate-in order to affect the goals which it does not control. The maintenance of price stability leads to: • Confidence in the kina exchange rate and management of the economy; • A foundation for stable fiscal operations of the Government; • Certainty for businesses to plan for long-term investment, and • A stable ma… The combination policy, 208.-V. A dynamic model, 209.- VI. The main result is that in order to ob, tain a unique equilibrium, that is, well defined tra, jectories for variables like inflation and output, the, central bank should use both the money supply, and the interest rate as instruments. How should present values be computed for this calculation in light of future uncertainties?

It is very in, triguing that all the literature as been satisfied, multiplicity of equilibria is a disturbing result. The algorithm for calculating fiscal and monetary control parameters, a taxation level, a budget deficit, state expenditures, real money, a real interest rate and a real exchange rate, has been designed within the known Keynesian IS-LM macroeconomic model under the assumption on a fixed price level. It is still, necessary to determine exogenously the levels of, When the policy is conducted with current or, backward interest rate feedback rules in order to, have a unique equilibrium, it is necessary to deter, implied by the feedback rule. ... monetary policy instrument, either the nominal in-terest rate or the money supply, is not able to elim- As a corollary, that there is an infinite number of equilibria when.

In Section Three, we explain the objectives and instruments of monetary policy. This paper is. The strength of a currency depends on a number of factors such as its inflation rate. His concern was that if agents have irratio, nal expectations about inflation, the economy, would not converge to the rational expectations, equilibrium. Historically, how this interaction takes place has been viewed as having an important impact on the ultimate objective of monetary policy, for example price stability or stimulating economic growth. Journal of Automation and Information Sciences. Alternative monetary policies are analyzed in an ad hoc macroeconomic model in which the public's expectations about prices are rational. Following Poole, the paper studies whether pegging the interest rate or pegging the money supply period by period minimizes an ad hoc quadratic loss function. It turns out that the probility distribution of output--dispersion as well as mean--is independent of the particular deterministic money supply rule in effect, and that under an interest rate rule the price level is indeterminate.

The monetary policies have been developed and implemented by the Bank of Lao PDR (BOL). This paper shows that these uniqueness conditions are economically unreasonable. The traditional actuarial approach – the approach currently used by the Social Security Administration in generating its most widely cited numbers - ignores risk and instead simply discounts “expected†future flows back to the present using a risk-free rate. Money plays a decidedly secondary or transmission role in aggregate demand. Keynesian beliefs center on the role of spending, especially investment and government spending, as the major determinant of output. Obstfeld, Maurice and Kenneth Rogoff, 1983, “Speculative Hyperinflations in Maximizing. Since there are less equi, librium equations than equilibrium variables there, are many equilibria unless the government. Simi, inal interest rate is set exogenously in every date, and state, and the money supply is set exoge, Thus, we have the following result when policy, is conducted with constant functions: in general, if, money supply is determined exogenously in every, date and state, and if interest rates are also deter, mined exogenously in the initial period, as well as, tions and prices can be determined uniquely, interest rates in every state, the initial money sup, Chart 2 illustrates this result for the example of, section 3. ...

The economy, which consists of many industries and heterogeneous households whose preferences differ with respect to the value of leisure, experiences both supply and demand shocks. Monetary policy refers to the measure which the central bank of a country takes in controlling the money and credit supply in the country with a view to achieving certain specific economic objectives. crease in the nominal interest rate is higher. iar with monetary policy and its tools.

Thus a constant growth rate rule for Using a version of the New Keynesian model with heterogeneous agents we study the issue of usefulness of central bank forecasts of their policy instruments. If the interest rate is the chosen, instrument it is not described how the associated, money supply is determined or vice versa; if the, money supply is the instrument it is not explained, It is confirmed both theoretically and empiri, cally that the demand for real money depends on, the nominal interest rate and on the real output, level.

A strong currency is considered to be one that is valuable, and this manifests itself when comparing its value to another currency. Thus, the description of the instruments of monetary policy in China incorporates both the instruments of the central bank and other non-central bank instruments. Monetary policy instruments are broadly classified as Direct, to refer to the authorities direct controlling mechanism of the monetary variables, and indirect . Budget: The budget of a nation is a useful instrument to assess the fluctuations in an economy. This rule closely approximates Federal Reserve policy during the past several years. The ad hoc model is one in which there is long-run neutrality, since it incorporates the aggregate supply schedule proposed by Lucas.

Candidates those who are having a passion to work in a banking sector should be aware of the RBI monetary policy. Monetary policy is conducted by the Federal Reserve System, the nation’s central bank, and it influences demand mainly by raising and lowering short-term interest rates. These are bank rate, open market operations and changes in reserve requirements usually referred to as quantitative credit controls. We show that in, general if the monetary authority uses just one in, strument, no matter which, there will be a large, multiplicity of equilibria. 3 0 obj monetary policy if monetary policy is used pre-emptively.

Developing the proper adjustment for risk requires a careful examination of the stream of future benefits. We thank participants in seminars at the Banco de Portugal, the ECB, Society for Economic Dy-namics Annual Meeting in Budapest and 20th Annual Congress of the European Economic Association in Amsterdam. We discuss various ways this can be done and the implications for financial markets. The decision to cut rates in 2019 was controversial.

Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. Comparing our results to those emphasized in the fiscal theory of the price level, it becomes clear that a key consideration for price-level determination is whether fiscal policy is specified as an exogenous sequence of primary surpluses/deficits or, alternatively, as an exogenous sequence of secondary surpluses/deficits. non-decreasing function of the inflation rate, the price level is indeterminate for both low and high values of the inflation elasticity of the feedback rule and determinate for intermediate values. Finally, we now assume without loss of generality that the, utility function is separable and linear in con, sumption. Under what conditions does a policy deliver a unique competitive equilibrium? These conditions are given by (3), (9), (10), tion determines the growth rate of money between, a state and any of its subsequent states. The primary objectives of monetary policies are the management of inflation or unemployment, and maintenance of currency exchange ratesFixed vs. Pegged Exchange RatesForeign currency exchange rates measure one currency's strength relative to another.

Either inflation is, there is an infinity of other equilibria for inflation, beg two interrelated questions: Why is local deter, minacy such an interesting property? Most monetarists believe that the best route towards economic stabilization is a constant rate of growth of the money supply and counter-cyclical monetary policy should be discouraged. eliminated reserve requirements and have added new instruments to the menu, a similar experience could be replicated in Jamaica. Monetary Policy Instruments _____ The Bank mainly uses four monetary policy instruments, namely; the discount rate, reserve requirement, liquidity requirement and open market operations. The instruments of monetary policy are of two types: first, quantitative, general or indirect; and second, qualitative, selective or direct. In general, there are, still an infinity of equilibria that pass these types, two types of equilibrium. Effectively, market valuation uses a discount rate that incorporates a risk premium. based on our recent research, the main references being Adão, This paper benefited from comments by Marta Abreu, José, Brandão de Brito, José António Machado, Maximiano Pinheiro, utility functions in consumption and real balances, with con, vertibility of money and no public debt. We can use the argument used before. The objective of monetary policy in Papua New Guinea (PNG), as stipulated in the Central Banking Act 2000 (Section 7) is to achieve and maintain price stability.

Perspectives on U.S. Monetary Policy Tools and Instruments* James D. Hamilton University of California at San Diego May 9, 2019 Revised: June 14, 2019 ABSTRACT The Federal Reserve characterizes its current policy decisions in terms of targets for the fed funds rate and the size of its balance sheet. Section 5 reveals which policy, variables need to be used as instruments in order, to have uniqueness of the equilibrium in the sto. For instance, in, some models an hyperinflation can be eliminated, if the central bank has sufficient resources and can, commit to buy back its currency if the price level, this issue here. endobj In this environment it is feasible to undo both the cash in advance and the price setting restrictions. mined by the government intertemporal budget constraint. This provides a measure of degrees of, policy relevance. In fact, Denmark is an exception in that it has maintained a basically unchanged fixed-exchange-rate policy since 1982. Lo, cal determinacy means that in the neighbourhood. 2.0 Historical Overview of Monetary Policy Implementation in Jamaica © 2008-2020 ResearchGate GmbH. In this article, we survey different approaches to monetary policy implementation. No matter what nominal interest rate, the central bank would choose, if people expected, inflation above the rational expectations equilib, rium, that would result in lower perceived real in-, terest rate, which would generate a higher de-, mand for current goods, leading to an even higher, inflation, which in turn would lead to an even, lower real interest rate, stimulating more the econ-, Unlike Friedman (1968), in the recent literature, agents are taken as being rational. chastic version of the model. o�!�����M�җؔJq8�l��WG�ڼ+>���Ao�R�d���@q��v[����)[+�iBP�MQck��՜���_�rH4�F�~���셗ר!SD��CQ��y�����Pi�� I�ij 3�=M�Lj�(yu�իܤ����@� ̵9{�(�}�6��i z���F��e=������I�X�M�Wv�����`���_'рʮ����`����� The idea that a common monetary policy in a monetary union imposes costs when compared with independent policies at the country level is largely widespread in the literature.

This action changes the reserve amount the banks have on hand. These models can be closed with the assumption that the economy's equilibrium lies on the unique convergent path (the saddlepath). But since the exponent is a constant smaller, left hand side of (16) smaller than the right hand, equilibria which are infinite in number are either, associated with inflation converging with proba. ����#�����7[���8G�z�Bه�J��PxD��N�;X��wb�Qj��Л�={e�Nr$SR�Z�[�9�4�xv(e���]�p���Ԥ� ��޾a��q1�|u�����婸_� ���ֵ���]Ӷͳ��~�M�Y� �=”BI@�mM�>q �贋�k�h�]�c�_�����0ݍʧ�UH;��="_-�>��f�9]��5�.T��ڪ�3hʘTEUYݰA��rR�/p�����˺��I>s��S�6�^�TaIkW�O��j�C,\��T�YNF�w|�\���Sq�Ar��n�é���W��mA��#����jx�tu�:�B?+� The fed funds rate today is essentially an All the quantitative methods affect the entire credit market in the same direction.

This booklet provides an introduction to U.S. monetary policy as it is currently conducted by answering a series of questions: In other words, in general the opaque regime delivers a higher level of welfare. In, other words, we assume that the fiscal policy is en, dogenous in the sense that whatever are the. On the other, hand, if all the policy variables, taxes, money sup, plies, interest rates and debt are chosen exoge, There are many ways in which the degrees of, freedom can be fulfilled. RBI Monetary Policy is the important banking awareness topic for banks exams. This conclusion, is not correct because whenever there is multiplic-, ity of equilibria it may be possible that sunspots, can cause large fluctuations in inflation. Instruments of Monetary Policy: The instruments of monetary policy are the same as instruments of credit control at the disposal of a central bank. macroeconomic imbalances, divided government, and lack of popular support for steps to stabilize and restructure the economy. The required monetary policy measures to maintain the projected targets are discussed at the Monetary Policy Implementation Committee (MPIC) meetings. Everyone should know how the monetary authority of India controls the monetary policies in India. The instruments of monetary policy used by the Since claims on accrued benefits are not currently traded in financial markets, we cannot directly observe a market value. Which out of the following is/are included in second schedule of Reserve Bank of India a) Nationalised Banks. Local determinacy means, as we said before, that in the neighbourhood of an equilibrium there, is no other equilibrium. As we emphasized in our discussion in the policy memorandum, problems include issues of inefficient economic structures, distorted prices, large. Moreover, non-central bank policy instruments are in place, which are not controlled by the central bank but have a direct influence on the final targets of monetary policy. They affect the level of aggregate demand through the supply of money, cost of money and availability of credit. Read full-text. This result is known as the fiscal theory of the price level. The views expressed in this paper are the authors and not necessarily those of Banco de Portugal. To conduct monetary policy, some monetary variables which the Central Bank controls are adjusted-a monetary aggregate, an interest rate or the exchange rate-in order to affect the goals which it does not control. The maintenance of price stability leads to: • Confidence in the kina exchange rate and management of the economy; • A foundation for stable fiscal operations of the Government; • Certainty for businesses to plan for long-term investment, and • A stable ma… The combination policy, 208.-V. A dynamic model, 209.- VI. The main result is that in order to ob, tain a unique equilibrium, that is, well defined tra, jectories for variables like inflation and output, the, central bank should use both the money supply, and the interest rate as instruments. How should present values be computed for this calculation in light of future uncertainties?

It is very in, triguing that all the literature as been satisfied, multiplicity of equilibria is a disturbing result. The algorithm for calculating fiscal and monetary control parameters, a taxation level, a budget deficit, state expenditures, real money, a real interest rate and a real exchange rate, has been designed within the known Keynesian IS-LM macroeconomic model under the assumption on a fixed price level. It is still, necessary to determine exogenously the levels of, When the policy is conducted with current or, backward interest rate feedback rules in order to, have a unique equilibrium, it is necessary to deter, implied by the feedback rule. ... monetary policy instrument, either the nominal in-terest rate or the money supply, is not able to elim- As a corollary, that there is an infinite number of equilibria when.

In Section Three, we explain the objectives and instruments of monetary policy. This paper is. The strength of a currency depends on a number of factors such as its inflation rate. His concern was that if agents have irratio, nal expectations about inflation, the economy, would not converge to the rational expectations, equilibrium. Historically, how this interaction takes place has been viewed as having an important impact on the ultimate objective of monetary policy, for example price stability or stimulating economic growth. Journal of Automation and Information Sciences. Alternative monetary policies are analyzed in an ad hoc macroeconomic model in which the public's expectations about prices are rational. Following Poole, the paper studies whether pegging the interest rate or pegging the money supply period by period minimizes an ad hoc quadratic loss function. It turns out that the probility distribution of output--dispersion as well as mean--is independent of the particular deterministic money supply rule in effect, and that under an interest rate rule the price level is indeterminate.

Conducting policy with feedback rules, It is commonly assumed that policy is con-, ducted with feedback rules, in particular, interest, rate feedback rules. One measure of the health of the Social Security system is the difference between the market value of the trust fund and the present value of benefits accrued to date. For, it implies that the same economic fundamentals, are compatible with many values for the macro, economic variables. This paper examines how recent econometric policy evaluation research on monetary policy rules can be applied in a practical policymaking environment. Monetarists feel that the price level is determined, especially in the long run, primarily by monetary movements. can be verified the linearized version is, There may be institutions that we have ignored, in the model, which can be used to eliminate some, of these “undesirable” equilibria. The monetary policies have been developed and implemented by the Bank of Lao PDR (BOL). This paper shows that these uniqueness conditions are economically unreasonable. The traditional actuarial approach – the approach currently used by the Social Security Administration in generating its most widely cited numbers - ignores risk and instead simply discounts “expected†future flows back to the present using a risk-free rate. Money plays a decidedly secondary or transmission role in aggregate demand.

The economy, which consists of many industries and heterogeneous households whose preferences differ with respect to the value of leisure, experiences both supply and demand shocks.

A strong currency is considered to be one that is valuable, and this manifests itself when comparing its value to another currency. Thus, the description of the instruments of monetary policy in China incorporates both the instruments of the central bank and other non-central bank instruments. Monetary policy instruments are broadly classified as Direct, to refer to the authorities direct controlling mechanism of the monetary variables, and indirect . Budget: The budget of a nation is a useful instrument to assess the fluctuations in an economy. This rule closely approximates Federal Reserve policy during the past several years. The ad hoc model is one in which there is long-run neutrality, since it incorporates the aggregate supply schedule proposed by Lucas.

Candidates those who are having a passion to work in a banking sector should be aware of the RBI monetary policy. Monetary policy is conducted by the Federal Reserve System, the nation’s central bank, and it influences demand mainly by raising and lowering short-term interest rates. These are bank rate, open market operations and changes in reserve requirements usually referred to as quantitative credit controls. We show that in, general if the monetary authority uses just one in, strument, no matter which, there will be a large, multiplicity of equilibria. 3 0 obj monetary policy if monetary policy is used pre-emptively.

Developing the proper adjustment for risk requires a careful examination of the stream of future benefits. We thank participants in seminars at the Banco de Portugal, the ECB, Society for Economic Dy-namics Annual Meeting in Budapest and 20th Annual Congress of the European Economic Association in Amsterdam. We discuss various ways this can be done and the implications for financial markets. The decision to cut rates in 2019 was controversial.

Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. Comparing our results to those emphasized in the fiscal theory of the price level, it becomes clear that a key consideration for price-level determination is whether fiscal policy is specified as an exogenous sequence of primary surpluses/deficits or, alternatively, as an exogenous sequence of secondary surpluses/deficits. non-decreasing function of the inflation rate, the price level is indeterminate for both low and high values of the inflation elasticity of the feedback rule and determinate for intermediate values. Finally, we now assume without loss of generality that the, utility function is separable and linear in con, sumption. Under what conditions does a policy deliver a unique competitive equilibrium? These conditions are given by (3), (9), (10), tion determines the growth rate of money between, a state and any of its subsequent states. The primary objectives of monetary policies are the management of inflation or unemployment, and maintenance of currency exchange ratesFixed vs. Pegged Exchange RatesForeign currency exchange rates measure one currency's strength relative to another.

Most monetarists believe that the best route towards economic stabilization is a constant rate of growth of the money supply and counter-cyclical monetary policy should be discouraged. eliminated reserve requirements and have added new instruments to the menu, a similar experience could be replicated in Jamaica. Monetary Policy Instruments _____ The Bank mainly uses four monetary policy instruments, namely; the discount rate, reserve requirement, liquidity requirement and open market operations. The instruments of monetary policy are of two types: first, quantitative, general or indirect; and second, qualitative, selective or direct. In general, there are, still an infinity of equilibria that pass these types, two types of equilibrium. Effectively, market valuation uses a discount rate that incorporates a risk premium. based on our recent research, the main references being Adão, This paper benefited from comments by Marta Abreu, José, Brandão de Brito, José António Machado, Maximiano Pinheiro, utility functions in consumption and real balances, with con, vertibility of money and no public debt. We can use the argument used before. The objective of monetary policy in Papua New Guinea (PNG), as stipulated in the Central Banking Act 2000 (Section 7) is to achieve and maintain price stability.

Section 5 reveals which policy, variables need to be used as instruments in order, to have uniqueness of the equilibrium in the sto. For instance, in, some models an hyperinflation can be eliminated, if the central bank has sufficient resources and can, commit to buy back its currency if the price level, this issue here. endobj In this environment it is feasible to undo both the cash in advance and the price setting restrictions. mined by the government intertemporal budget constraint. This provides a measure of degrees of, policy relevance. In fact, Denmark is an exception in that it has maintained a basically unchanged fixed-exchange-rate policy since 1982. Lo, cal determinacy means that in the neighbourhood. 2.0 Historical Overview of Monetary Policy Implementation in Jamaica © 2008-2020 ResearchGate GmbH.

This action changes the reserve amount the banks have on hand. These models can be closed with the assumption that the economy's equilibrium lies on the unique convergent path (the saddlepath). But since the exponent is a constant smaller, left hand side of (16) smaller than the right hand, equilibria which are infinite in number are either, associated with inflation converging with proba. ����#�����7[���8G�z�Bه�J��PxD��N�;X��wb�Qj��Л�={e�Nr$SR�Z�[�9�4�xv(e���]�p���Ԥ� ��޾a��q1�|u�����婸_� ���ֵ���]Ӷͳ��~�M�Y� �=”BI@�mM�>q �贋�k�h�]�c�_�����0ݍʧ�UH;��="_-�>��f�9]��5�.T��ڪ�3hʘTEUYݰA��rR�/p�����˺��I>s��S�6�^�TaIkW�O��j�C,\��T�YNF�w|�\���Sq�Ar��n�é���W��mA��#����jx�tu�:�B?+� The fed funds rate today is essentially an All the quantitative methods affect the entire credit market in the same direction.

This booklet provides an introduction to U.S. monetary policy as it is currently conducted by answering a series of questions: In other words, in general the opaque regime delivers a higher level of welfare. In, other words, we assume that the fiscal policy is en, dogenous in the sense that whatever are the. On the other, hand, if all the policy variables, taxes, money sup, plies, interest rates and debt are chosen exoge, There are many ways in which the degrees of, freedom can be fulfilled. RBI Monetary Policy is the important banking awareness topic for banks exams. This conclusion, is not correct because whenever there is multiplic-, ity of equilibria it may be possible that sunspots, can cause large fluctuations in inflation. Instruments of Monetary Policy: The instruments of monetary policy are the same as instruments of credit control at the disposal of a central bank. macroeconomic imbalances, divided government, and lack of popular support for steps to stabilize and restructure the economy. The required monetary policy measures to maintain the projected targets are discussed at the Monetary Policy Implementation Committee (MPIC) meetings. Everyone should know how the monetary authority of India controls the monetary policies in India. The instruments of monetary policy used by the Since claims on accrued benefits are not currently traded in financial markets, we cannot directly observe a market value. Which out of the following is/are included in second schedule of Reserve Bank of India a) Nationalised Banks. Local determinacy means, as we said before, that in the neighbourhood of an equilibrium there, is no other equilibrium. As we emphasized in our discussion in the policy memorandum, problems include issues of inefficient economic structures, distorted prices, large. Moreover, non-central bank policy instruments are in place, which are not controlled by the central bank but have a direct influence on the final targets of monetary policy. They affect the level of aggregate demand through the supply of money, cost of money and availability of credit. Read full-text. This result is known as the fiscal theory of the price level. The views expressed in this paper are the authors and not necessarily those of Banco de Portugal. To conduct monetary policy, some monetary variables which the Central Bank controls are adjusted-a monetary aggregate, an interest rate or the exchange rate-in order to affect the goals which it does not control. The maintenance of price stability leads to: • Confidence in the kina exchange rate and management of the economy; • A foundation for stable fiscal operations of the Government; • Certainty for businesses to plan for long-term investment, and • A stable ma… The combination policy, 208.-V. A dynamic model, 209.- VI. The main result is that in order to ob, tain a unique equilibrium, that is, well defined tra, jectories for variables like inflation and output, the, central bank should use both the money supply, and the interest rate as instruments. How should present values be computed for this calculation in light of future uncertainties? In addition, in pe-, other dates would determine recursively all the, single solution for the allocations and prices.

It is very in, triguing that all the literature as been satisfied, multiplicity of equilibria is a disturbing result. The algorithm for calculating fiscal and monetary control parameters, a taxation level, a budget deficit, state expenditures, real money, a real interest rate and a real exchange rate, has been designed within the known Keynesian IS-LM macroeconomic model under the assumption on a fixed price level. It is still, necessary to determine exogenously the levels of, When the policy is conducted with current or, backward interest rate feedback rules in order to, have a unique equilibrium, it is necessary to deter, implied by the feedback rule. ... monetary policy instrument, either the nominal in-terest rate or the money supply, is not able to elim- As a corollary, that there is an infinite number of equilibria when.

In Section Three, we explain the objectives and instruments of monetary policy. This paper is. The strength of a currency depends on a number of factors such as its inflation rate. His concern was that if agents have irratio, nal expectations about inflation, the economy, would not converge to the rational expectations, equilibrium. Historically, how this interaction takes place has been viewed as having an important impact on the ultimate objective of monetary policy, for example price stability or stimulating economic growth. Journal of Automation and Information Sciences. Alternative monetary policies are analyzed in an ad hoc macroeconomic model in which the public's expectations about prices are rational. Following Poole, the paper studies whether pegging the interest rate or pegging the money supply period by period minimizes an ad hoc quadratic loss function. It turns out that the probility distribution of output--dispersion as well as mean--is independent of the particular deterministic money supply rule in effect, and that under an interest rate rule the price level is indeterminate.

Conducting policy with feedback rules, It is commonly assumed that policy is con-, ducted with feedback rules, in particular, interest, rate feedback rules. One measure of the health of the Social Security system is the difference between the market value of the trust fund and the present value of benefits accrued to date. For, it implies that the same economic fundamentals, are compatible with many values for the macro, economic variables. This paper examines how recent econometric policy evaluation research on monetary policy rules can be applied in a practical policymaking environment. Monetarists feel that the price level is determined, especially in the long run, primarily by monetary movements. can be verified the linearized version is, There may be institutions that we have ignored, in the model, which can be used to eliminate some, of these “undesirable” equilibria. The monetary policies have been developed and implemented by the Bank of Lao PDR (BOL). This paper shows that these uniqueness conditions are economically unreasonable. The traditional actuarial approach – the approach currently used by the Social Security Administration in generating its most widely cited numbers - ignores risk and instead simply discounts “expected†future flows back to the present using a risk-free rate. Money plays a decidedly secondary or transmission role in aggregate demand. Keynesian beliefs center on the role of spending, especially investment and government spending, as the major determinant of output. Obstfeld, Maurice and Kenneth Rogoff, 1983, “Speculative Hyperinflations in Maximizing. Since there are less equi, librium equations than equilibrium variables there, are many equilibria unless the government. Simi, inal interest rate is set exogenously in every date, and state, and the money supply is set exoge, Thus, we have the following result when policy, is conducted with constant functions: in general, if, money supply is determined exogenously in every, date and state, and if interest rates are also deter, mined exogenously in the initial period, as well as, tions and prices can be determined uniquely, interest rates in every state, the initial money sup, Chart 2 illustrates this result for the example of, section 3. ...

Then, central bank conducts a pure current nonlinear, After substituting the Taylor rule in (6) get, There is no condition to pin down the initial, value for inflation. Since most, central banks have the stabilization of inflation as, their main objective it is crucial to know how a. unique equilibrium for inflation can be achieved. The economy, which consists of many industries and heterogeneous households whose preferences differ with respect to the value of leisure, experiences both supply and demand shocks. Monetary policy refers to the measure which the central bank of a country takes in controlling the money and credit supply in the country with a view to achieving certain specific economic objectives. crease in the nominal interest rate is higher. iar with monetary policy and its tools.

The instrument problem, 199.-III. At first sight it would seem that it would be, preferable that a central bank would follow a T, “undesirable” equilibria, hyperinflations or hyper, deflations would not be possible. Two case studies—German unification and the 1990 oil-price shock—that had a bearing on the operation of monetary policy in recent years are used to illustrate how such a policy rule might work in practice.

Thus a constant growth rate rule for Using a version of the New Keynesian model with heterogeneous agents we study the issue of usefulness of central bank forecasts of their policy instruments. If the interest rate is the chosen, instrument it is not described how the associated, money supply is determined or vice versa; if the, money supply is the instrument it is not explained, It is confirmed both theoretically and empiri, cally that the demand for real money depends on, the nominal interest rate and on the real output, level.

A strong currency is considered to be one that is valuable, and this manifests itself when comparing its value to another currency. Thus, the description of the instruments of monetary policy in China incorporates both the instruments of the central bank and other non-central bank instruments. Monetary policy instruments are broadly classified as Direct, to refer to the authorities direct controlling mechanism of the monetary variables, and indirect . Budget: The budget of a nation is a useful instrument to assess the fluctuations in an economy. This rule closely approximates Federal Reserve policy during the past several years. The ad hoc model is one in which there is long-run neutrality, since it incorporates the aggregate supply schedule proposed by Lucas.

We first show that for any policy under the transparent regime there exists a policy under the opaque regime that delivers the same allocation. The earliest noto, rious effort was by Friedman (1968), who argues, against the use of the interest rate as an instru, ment. Let, the steady state competitive equilibrium for the in. Because the environment is, stochastic, the number of conditions necessary to, get uniqueness is much larger as we will see be, In section 5 we show that in general by setting, only a function for one of the monetary policy, variables uniqueness of the equilibrium is not, achieved.

We derive principles of optimal short run monetary policy in a real business cycles model, with money and with monopolistic firms that set prices one period in advance. Instruments, procedures and strategies of monetary policy: an assessment of possible relationships for 21 OECD countries Job Swank and Lidwin van Yelden1 Introduction There is a wide variety in the choice of instruments, operating procedures and strategies of monetary policy by central banks (see Borio, 1996).

Candidates those who are having a passion to work in a banking sector should be aware of the RBI monetary policy. Monetary policy is conducted by the Federal Reserve System, the nation’s central bank, and it influences demand mainly by raising and lowering short-term interest rates. These are bank rate, open market operations and changes in reserve requirements usually referred to as quantitative credit controls. We show that in, general if the monetary authority uses just one in, strument, no matter which, there will be a large, multiplicity of equilibria. 3 0 obj monetary policy if monetary policy is used pre-emptively. ADVERTISEMENTS: Some of the major instruments of fiscal policy are as follows: A.

Developing the proper adjustment for risk requires a careful examination of the stream of future benefits. We thank participants in seminars at the Banco de Portugal, the ECB, Society for Economic Dy-namics Annual Meeting in Budapest and 20th Annual Congress of the European Economic Association in Amsterdam. We discuss various ways this can be done and the implications for financial markets. The decision to cut rates in 2019 was controversial. When the monetary policy is conducted, with a money feedback rule in order to have a, unique equilibrium, it is necessary to determine, Under the assumption that the fiscal policy was, endogenous, a monetary policy that uses just one, monetary policy instrument, either the nominal in, inate the multiplicity of equilibria. x��\Yo�F~7���Gj1j�/H` �$A`�`f���(�;�P�����r���:ٖ�j�类���"/~j�r�O���/~�|2/���������_��O�}Y�]����w��i�����>^��E,¿�� The classic Taylor rule, Taylor (1993), is one such example, setting the in, terest rate as a function of the current estimates of, the output gap and inflation.

Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. Comparing our results to those emphasized in the fiscal theory of the price level, it becomes clear that a key consideration for price-level determination is whether fiscal policy is specified as an exogenous sequence of primary surpluses/deficits or, alternatively, as an exogenous sequence of secondary surpluses/deficits. non-decreasing function of the inflation rate, the price level is indeterminate for both low and high values of the inflation elasticity of the feedback rule and determinate for intermediate values. Finally, we now assume without loss of generality that the, utility function is separable and linear in con, sumption. Under what conditions does a policy deliver a unique competitive equilibrium? These conditions are given by (3), (9), (10), tion determines the growth rate of money between, a state and any of its subsequent states. The primary objectives of monetary policies are the management of inflation or unemployment, and maintenance of currency exchange ratesFixed vs. Pegged Exchange RatesForeign currency exchange rates measure one currency's strength relative to another. We assume that there is a positive long-run correlation between average labor earnings and the stock market. In particular, a, still consistent with an infinity of equilibria. of an equilibrium there are no other equilibria. We study transparency of monetary policy in a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium model. Either inflation is, there is an infinity of other equilibria for inflation, beg two interrelated questions: Why is local deter, minacy such an interesting property? Most monetarists believe that the best route towards economic stabilization is a constant rate of growth of the money supply and counter-cyclical monetary policy should be discouraged. eliminated reserve requirements and have added new instruments to the menu, a similar experience could be replicated in Jamaica. Monetary Policy Instruments _____ The Bank mainly uses four monetary policy instruments, namely; the discount rate, reserve requirement, liquidity requirement and open market operations. The instruments of monetary policy are of two types: first, quantitative, general or indirect; and second, qualitative, selective or direct. In general, there are, still an infinity of equilibria that pass these types, two types of equilibrium. Effectively, market valuation uses a discount rate that incorporates a risk premium. based on our recent research, the main references being Adão, This paper benefited from comments by Marta Abreu, José, Brandão de Brito, José António Machado, Maximiano Pinheiro, utility functions in consumption and real balances, with con, vertibility of money and no public debt. We can use the argument used before. The objective of monetary policy in Papua New Guinea (PNG), as stipulated in the Central Banking Act 2000 (Section 7) is to achieve and maintain price stability.

Perspectives on U.S. Monetary Policy Tools and Instruments* James D. Hamilton University of California at San Diego May 9, 2019 Revised: June 14, 2019 ABSTRACT The Federal Reserve characterizes its current policy decisions in terms of targets for the fed funds rate and the size of its balance sheet. Section 5 reveals which policy, variables need to be used as instruments in order, to have uniqueness of the equilibrium in the sto. For instance, in, some models an hyperinflation can be eliminated, if the central bank has sufficient resources and can, commit to buy back its currency if the price level, this issue here. endobj In this environment it is feasible to undo both the cash in advance and the price setting restrictions. mined by the government intertemporal budget constraint. This provides a measure of degrees of, policy relevance. In fact, Denmark is an exception in that it has maintained a basically unchanged fixed-exchange-rate policy since 1982. Lo, cal determinacy means that in the neighbourhood. 2.0 Historical Overview of Monetary Policy Implementation in Jamaica © 2008-2020 ResearchGate GmbH. In this article, we survey different approaches to monetary policy implementation. No matter what nominal interest rate, the central bank would choose, if people expected, inflation above the rational expectations equilib, rium, that would result in lower perceived real in-, terest rate, which would generate a higher de-, mand for current goods, leading to an even higher, inflation, which in turn would lead to an even, lower real interest rate, stimulating more the econ-, Unlike Friedman (1968), in the recent literature, agents are taken as being rational. chastic version of the model. o�!�����M�җؔJq8�l��WG�ڼ+>���Ao�R�d���@q��v[����)[+�iBP�MQck��՜���_�rH4�F�~���셗ר!SD��CQ��y�����Pi�� I�ij 3�=M�Lj�(yu�իܤ����@� ̵9{�(�}�6��i z���F��e=������I�X�M�Wv�����`���_'рʮ����`����� The idea that a common monetary policy in a monetary union imposes costs when compared with independent policies at the country level is largely widespread in the literature.

This action changes the reserve amount the banks have on hand. These models can be closed with the assumption that the economy's equilibrium lies on the unique convergent path (the saddlepath). But since the exponent is a constant smaller, left hand side of (16) smaller than the right hand, equilibria which are infinite in number are either, associated with inflation converging with proba. ����#�����7[���8G�z�Bه�J��PxD��N�;X��wb�Qj��Л�={e�Nr$SR�Z�[�9�4�xv(e���]�p���Ԥ� ��޾a��q1�|u�����婸_� ���ֵ���]Ӷͳ��~�M�Y� �=”BI@�mM�>q �贋�k�h�]�c�_�����0ݍʧ�UH;��="_-�>��f�9]��5�.T��ڪ�3hʘTEUYݰA��rR�/p�����˺��I>s��S�6�^�TaIkW�O��j�C,\��T�YNF�w|�\���Sq�Ar��n�é���W��mA��#����jx�tu�:�B?+� The fed funds rate today is essentially an All the quantitative methods affect the entire credit market in the same direction.

This booklet provides an introduction to U.S. monetary policy as it is currently conducted by answering a series of questions: In other words, in general the opaque regime delivers a higher level of welfare. In, other words, we assume that the fiscal policy is en, dogenous in the sense that whatever are the. On the other, hand, if all the policy variables, taxes, money sup, plies, interest rates and debt are chosen exoge, There are many ways in which the degrees of, freedom can be fulfilled. RBI Monetary Policy is the important banking awareness topic for banks exams. This conclusion, is not correct because whenever there is multiplic-, ity of equilibria it may be possible that sunspots, can cause large fluctuations in inflation. Instruments of Monetary Policy: The instruments of monetary policy are the same as instruments of credit control at the disposal of a central bank. macroeconomic imbalances, divided government, and lack of popular support for steps to stabilize and restructure the economy. The required monetary policy measures to maintain the projected targets are discussed at the Monetary Policy Implementation Committee (MPIC) meetings. Everyone should know how the monetary authority of India controls the monetary policies in India. The instruments of monetary policy used by the Since claims on accrued benefits are not currently traded in financial markets, we cannot directly observe a market value. Which out of the following is/are included in second schedule of Reserve Bank of India a) Nationalised Banks. Local determinacy means, as we said before, that in the neighbourhood of an equilibrium there, is no other equilibrium. As we emphasized in our discussion in the policy memorandum, problems include issues of inefficient economic structures, distorted prices, large. Moreover, non-central bank policy instruments are in place, which are not controlled by the central bank but have a direct influence on the final targets of monetary policy. They affect the level of aggregate demand through the supply of money, cost of money and availability of credit. Read full-text. This result is known as the fiscal theory of the price level. The views expressed in this paper are the authors and not necessarily those of Banco de Portugal. To conduct monetary policy, some monetary variables which the Central Bank controls are adjusted-a monetary aggregate, an interest rate or the exchange rate-in order to affect the goals which it does not control. The maintenance of price stability leads to: • Confidence in the kina exchange rate and management of the economy; • A foundation for stable fiscal operations of the Government; • Certainty for businesses to plan for long-term investment, and • A stable ma… The combination policy, 208.-V. A dynamic model, 209.- VI. The main result is that in order to ob, tain a unique equilibrium, that is, well defined tra, jectories for variables like inflation and output, the, central bank should use both the money supply, and the interest rate as instruments. How should present values be computed for this calculation in light of future uncertainties? In addition, in pe-, other dates would determine recursively all the, single solution for the allocations and prices. Production uses labour according to, plest to study the instruments of monetary policy, More complex models deliver similar results, as, long as agents take decisions for at least two peri, the exposition, we assume that the history of, shocks has a discrete distribution. Assume that the, s were already given. If benefits are risky and this risk is priced by the market, then actuarial estimates will differ from market value. It is very in, triguing that all the literature as been satisfied, multiplicity of equilibria is a disturbing result. The algorithm for calculating fiscal and monetary control parameters, a taxation level, a budget deficit, state expenditures, real money, a real interest rate and a real exchange rate, has been designed within the known Keynesian IS-LM macroeconomic model under the assumption on a fixed price level. It is still, necessary to determine exogenously the levels of, When the policy is conducted with current or, backward interest rate feedback rules in order to, have a unique equilibrium, it is necessary to deter, implied by the feedback rule. ... monetary policy instrument, either the nominal in-terest rate or the money supply, is not able to elim- As a corollary, that there is an infinite number of equilibria when.

The introduction of, the concept of the time-invariant equilibrium is, proceed an assumption is made, for each state, pendent distribution. In Section Three, we explain the objectives and instruments of monetary policy. This paper is. The strength of a currency depends on a number of factors such as its inflation rate. His concern was that if agents have irratio, nal expectations about inflation, the economy, would not converge to the rational expectations, equilibrium. Historically, how this interaction takes place has been viewed as having an important impact on the ultimate objective of monetary policy, for example price stability or stimulating economic growth. Journal of Automation and Information Sciences. Alternative monetary policies are analyzed in an ad hoc macroeconomic model in which the public's expectations about prices are rational. Following Poole, the paper studies whether pegging the interest rate or pegging the money supply period by period minimizes an ad hoc quadratic loss function. It turns out that the probility distribution of output--dispersion as well as mean--is independent of the particular deterministic money supply rule in effect, and that under an interest rate rule the price level is indeterminate.
