Wordle for Central Bankers: Separating Impact of Words and Actions Under High Inflation– The Case of Turkey

Burcu Ünüvar ()

Eastern European Economics, 2022, vol. 60, issue 5, 375-392

Abstract: This paper investigates the effectiveness of monetary policy in Turkey, i.e. a developing country with high inflation, through its impact on the local currency denominated sovereign yield curve. Employing a two-factor, market-based methodology and introducing a new dataset, the study calculates the surprise factor for both actions (monetary policy surprise) and words (communication surprise). Checking their impacts separately, the study finds evidence that the communication provided by the Central Bank of Turkey through Monetary Policy Committee Statements help to extend the impact of the monetary policy to the long end of the yield curve, even during periods of high inflation.
