Monetary Policy in a Channel System


Berentsen, Aleksander; Monet, Cyril (2006). Monetary Policy in a Channel System. Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 295, University of Zurich.

Abstract

This paper studies the theoretical properties of a channel system of interestratencontrol in a dynamic general equilibrium model. Agents are subject to liquidity shocks which can be partially insured in a secured money market, ornat a standing facility operated by the central bank. We show that it is optimal to have a strictly positive interest rate corridor and that a shift of the corridor affects the money market rate one for one. Moreover, the central bank canntighten its policy without changing its policy rate by simply increasing the corridor symmetrically around the policy rate.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
