Abstract

This paper provides an explanation of how the implementation of particular types of monetary policy and financial regulation affects economic development through its effects on macroeconomic stability. Firstly, we focus on the problems associated to the definition of reaction functions for the execution of monetary policy. Secondly, we analyze the problems involved in the design and implementation of macro-prudential regulatory policies, emphasizing how the ability of the regulator to interpret financial risks is a determinant of financial stability. Our analysis is not restricted to the case of Argentina. Instead, its applicability extends to all those economies in which the instrument of monetary policy is the interest rate and to those that are experiencing intense transformations in the configuration of their financial system.
