The Optimal Monetary Instrument for Prudential Purposes

C.A.E. Goodhard, P. Sunirand and Dimitrios Tsomocos

No 2008fe26, Economics Series Working Papers from University of Oxford, Department of Economics

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to assess the choice between adopting a monetary base or an interest rate setting instrument to maintain financial stability. Our results suggest that the interest rate instrument is preferable, since during times of a panic or financial crisis the Central Bank automatically satisfies the increased demand for money. Thus, it prevents sharp losses in asset values and enhanced asset volatility
