Effects of monetary policy shocks on large amounts of macroeconomic variables are identified by a new class of functional-coefficient factor-augmented vector autoregressive (FAVAR) models, which allows coefficients of classical FAVAR models to vary with some variable. In the empirical study, we analyze the impulse response functions estimated by the newly proposed model and compare our results with those from classical FAVAR models. Our empirical finding is that our new model has an ability to eliminate the well-known price puzzle without adding new variables into the dataset.
