Monetary policy rules for a developing country: Evidence from Pakistan

Abdul Aleem () and Amine Lahiani

Journal of Asian Economics, 2011, vol. 22, issue 6, 483-494

Abstract: This paper estimates forward-looking monetary policy rules to examine the interest rate setting behavior of the State Bank of Pakistan. Considering the external constraints on monetary policy, core inflation and a country-specific measure of the output gap, we demonstrate that the State Bank of Pakistan reacts to changes in inflation, the output gap and the federal funds rate.
