Performance of Inflation Targeting Based on Constant Interest Rate Projections

CDMA Conference Paper Series from Centre for Dynamic Macroeconomic Analysis

Abstract: Monetary policy is sometimes formulated in terms of a target level of inflation, a fixed time horizon and a constant interest rate that is anticipated to achieve the target at the specified horizon. These requirements lead to constant interest rate (CIR) instrument rules. Using the standard New Keynesian model, it is shown that some forms of CIR policy lead to both indeterminacy of equilibria and instability under adaptive learning. However, some other forms of CIR policy perform better. We also examine the properties of the different policy rules in the presence of inertial demand and price behaviour.

Keywords: Indeterminacy; instability under learning; inflation targeting; inertia in demand; inflation inertia. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
