Description

What tools are available for setting and analyzing monetary policy?

World-renowned contributors examine recent evidence on subjects as varied as price-setting, inflation persistence, the private sector's formation of inflation expectations, and the monetary policy transmission mechanism. 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.

This volume is a must for anyone interested in the current state of the development of monetary theory as viewed by the community of most of the distinguished monetary economists. Both the work on monetary theory and the understanding of its importance have exploded in the last 20 years. This valuable compendium shows the enormous and detailed developments made recently. It highlights the problems in blending theory with institutions. It is a contribution of note.
