Optimal Central Bank Lending
AbstractWe analyze optimal monetary policy in a sticky pricemodel where the central bank supplies money outrightvia asset purchases and lends money temporarily againstcollateral. The terms of central bank lending affect ra-tioning of money and impact on macroeconomic aggre-gates. The central bank can set the policy rate and itsinflation target in a way that implements the first bestlong-run allocation, which is impossible if money weresupplied in a lump-sum way (as commonly assumed).Efficient central bank lending further increases gainsfrom macroeconomic stabilization beyond pure interestrate policy. This requires departing from a "Treasuries-only" regime.
