Interest Rate Control in a Model of Monetary Policy

Spencer Dale and Andrew Haldane

The Manchester School of Economic & Social Studies, 1998, vol. 66, issue 3, 354-75

Abstract: The authors extend the model of B. S. Bernanke and A. S. Blinder (1988) to consider formally interactions between the monetary authorities and the banking sector. Monetary policy is characterized in terms of the authorities control over prices in the base money market, rather than quantities. But those market rates directly impinging upon real activity are distinct from--although not independent of--this administered rate. Imperfect control over market interest rates obtains. An empirical illustration is given for the United Kingdom and the model is then extended into a stochastic setting.
