International Observations of Monetary Policy Periods
Working Papers from UW-Whitewater, Department of Economics
I identify twenty observations of monetary policy periods within six of the G7 countries, following the spirit of the Narrative Approach used by Romer and Romer (1989). Statistics are used to characterize the state of these economies from the 1970's until 2001. Major historical events and narrative evidence are then used as a guide to identify these monetary policy periods, which re?ect the stance of monetary policy at central banks during those events. The significance of these monetary policy periods are then assessed using an instrumental variables approach. The results find the policy periods to be significant in the majority of the countries.
