Monetary Policy and Financial Stability in Latin America and the Caribbean, vol 1

Edited by Alberto Ortiz

in Investigación Conjunta-Joint Research from Centro de Estudios Monetarios Latinoamericanos, CEMLA

Abstract: Financial instability can have devastating consequences on economic activity, price stability and the monetary policy transmission mechanisms. This is hardly news for Latin America and the Caribbean that have an unfortunate history of financial struggles that has led to a widespread inclusion of an explicit financial stability mandate in many central banks. Given the prevalence of this financial stability mandate, policy making could benefit from a better understanding of the monetary policy-financial stability nexus. This book presents efforts made through joint research among central banks’ economists of the Americas to advance in this front.
