Loan commitments and optimal monetary policy
AbstractThis paper analyzes how increased reliance on floating rate loan commitments by firms affects the optimal interest-rate-conditioned monetary policy. The analysis uses a stylized Poole-type IS-LM structure that explicitly integrates the interaction between credit and goods markets. By endogenizing the choice between traditional loans and floating-rate commitments, the model can analyze interaction between central bank monetary policy decisions and the choice of loan contract types. A key implication is that, when this joint decision problem is taken into account, the separation between the monetary and goods sectors assumed in the standard IS-LM paradigm breaks down.
