Estimated Interest Rate Rules: Do they Determine Determinacy Properties?

No 7555, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers
No. I demonstrate that econometric estimations of nominal interest rate rules may tell little, if anything, about an economy's determinacy properties. In particular, correct inference about the interest-rate response to inflation provides no information about determinacy. Instead, it could reveal whether optimal monetary policymaking is performed under discretion or commitment.
