Same, but different: Testing monetary policy shock measures

Stephanie Ettmeier and Alexander Kriwoluzky

No 9/2017, IWH Discussion Papers from Halle Institute for Economic Research (IWH)

Abstract: In this study, we test whether three popular measures for monetary policy, that is, Romer and Romer (2004), Barakchian and Crowe (2013), and Gertler and Karadi (2015), constitute suitable proxy variables for monetary policy shocks. To this end, we employ different test statistics used in the literature to detect weak proxy variables. We find that the measure derived by Gertler and Karadi (2015) is the most suitable in this regard.
