Monetary policy challenges: how central banks changed their modus operandi

Giorgio Di Giorgio ()

Eurasian Economic Review, 2014, vol. 4, issue 1, 25-43

Abstract: The financial crisis that started in August 2007 deeply changed the modus operandi of monetary policy on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean and stimulated a debate about how to formally define and practically implement newly relevant objectives, such as systemic stability, in the reaction function of the Monetary Authorities. This paper provides an assessment of the monetary policy decisions and interventions undertaken by the FED and the ECB, and evaluates the respective monetary policy regimes in place before and during the crisis according to the lessons derived from the theoretical literature on monetary policy developed in the last 2 decades.
