Forward guidance shocks

Abstract: I estimate the effects of a forward guidance (FG) shock and compare it with a traditional monetary policy (MP) shock. I find that FG shocks have smaller effects on macroeconomic aggregates than MP shocks. Structural identification is reached by a novel heteroscedascticity-based approach that exploits (i) the introduction of the forward guidance in the form of a published policy-rate path in the US in January 2012; and (ii) the zero lower bound (ZLB) constraints. My findings are consistent with the predictions of the latest theories about the FG puzzle.
