Central Bank Design with Heterogeneous Agents


Berentsen, Aleksander; Strub, Carlo (2008). Central Bank Design with Heterogeneous Agents. Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 365, University of Zurich.

Abstract

We study alternative institutional arrangements for the determination of monetary policy in a general equilibrium model with heterogeneous agents,nwhere monetary policy has redistributive effects. Inflation is determined by a policy board using either simple-majority voting, supermajority voting, ornbargaining. We compare the equilibrium inflation rates to the first-best allocation.
