Indicator Variables for Optimal Policy

Lars Svensson () and Michael Woodford ()

No 7953, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: The optimal weights on indicators in models with partial information about the state of the economy and forward-looking variables are derived and interpreted, both for equilibria under discretion and under commitment. An example of optimal monetary policy with a partially observable potential output and a forward-looking indicator is examined. The optimal response to the optimal estimate of potential output displays certainty-equivalence, whereas the optimal response to the imperfect observation of output depends on the noise in this observation.
