Abstract: This paper aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the monetary and macro-prudential policies in GCC economies during the period 2000-2013. The main results are that the macro-prudential policies are more powerful compared to monetary policy where the macro-prudential policy shocks explain 14.2% and 10.3% of credit and output fluctuations respectively, while monetary policy shocks explain only 5.5% and 6.4% of credit and output fluctuations, respectively. The main recommendations of the paper are that the GCC countries must move forward and faster in diversifying their economies and should improve the data availability which may require establishing a financial stability coordination committee.
