Does Targeted Monetary Policy Matter? A Perspective from China
Economic Affairs, 2018, vol. 38, issue 1, 106-124
Several major central banks have experimented with targeted monetary policy to improve credit resource allocation. This policy only applies to â€˜eligibleâ€™ banks. For example, The People's Bank of China conducted seven targeted reductions of reserve requirements during 2014â€“15. This article documents the phenomenon of targeted monetary policy and evaluates its effects. The results show that, in the case of China, this policy has generated an extra significant, positive return on the stocks of eligible banks, amounting to 1.2â€“1.3 per cent in a fourâ€ day treatment period. This substantial return gives commercial banks an extra incentive to align with the policy goals of central banks.
