Title: Estimated Interest Rate Rules: Do they Determine Determinacy Properties?
Author(s): Henrik Jensen
Publication Date: November 2009
Keyword(s): Equilibrium determinacy, Estimated Taylor rules, Interest rate rules, Monetary policy and Rules vs. discretion.
Programme Area(s): International Macroeconomics
Abstract: No. I demonstrate that econometric estimations of nominal interest rate rules may tell little, if anything, about an economy's determinacy properties. In particular, correct inference about the interest-rate response to inflation provides no information about determinacy. Instead, it could reveal whether optimal monetary policymaking is performed under discretion or commitment.
