The effects of monetary policy shocks: evidence from the flow of funds
AbstractThis paper assesses the impact of a monetary policy shock on the U.S. economy. The authors' measures of contractionary monetary policy shocks are associated with a fall in various monetary aggregates and a rise in the federal funds rate, declines in different measures of real activity, and sharp declines in commodity prices and a delayed decline in the GDP price deflator. In addition, net funds raised by the business sector increases for roughly a year, after which it falls. Finally, the authors find that households do not adjust their financial assets and liabilities for several quarters after a monetary shock. Copyright 1996 by MIT Press.
