Unconventional Monetary Policy Effects on Bank Lending in the Euro Area

Stefan Behrendt

No 2017-002, Jena Economic Research Papers from Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena

Abstract: This paper employs a structural VAR framework with sign restrictions to estimate the effects of unconventional monetary policies of the European Central Bank since the Global Financial Crisis, mainly in their effectiveness towards bank lending. Using a variable for newly issued credit instead of the outstanding stock of credit, the effects on bank lending are smaller than found in previous similar studies for the Euro area.
