Can monetary policy influence long-term interest rates?
Oscar Jorda ()
FRBSF Economic Letter, 2005, issue may20
This Economic Letter argues that the Fed exercises significant influence on long-term rates. The key to reconciling this position with the empirical evidence resides in the gradual pattern of policy interventions characteristic of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). This pattern, a likely reflection of the Fed's response to changes in economic activity in the long run (see Rudebusch 2002), is essential to understanding fluctuations in long-term rates.
