Beggar-Thy-Neighbor? The International Effects of ECB Unconventional Monetary Policy Measures

Kristina Bluwstein and Fabio Canova ()

International Journal of Central Banking, 2016, vol. 12, issue 3, 69-120

Abstract: This paper examines the effects of unconventional monetary policy measures by the European Central Bank on nine European countries not adopting the euro with a novel Bayesian mixed-frequency structural vector autoregressive technique. Unconventional monetary policy disturbances generate important domestic fluctuations. The wealth, the risk, and the portfolio rebalancing channels matter for international propagation; the credit channel does not. The responses of foreign output and inflation are independent of the exchange rate regime. International spillovers are larger in countries with more advanced financial systems and a larger share of domestic banks. A comparison with conventional monetary policy disturbances and with announcement surprises is provided.
