Macroeconomic impact of monetary policy shocks: Evidence from recent experience in Thailand

Author

  • Kubo, Akihiro

Abstract

This paper investigates the monetary transmission mechanism in Thailand, employing a VAR approach. It is found that the Bank of Thailand has leverage over the real interest rate in the short run due to inflation inertia. It is also found that the Thai monetary transmission mechanism has important international dimensions. More specifically, monetary contraction has stronger negative effects on import demand in the short run even though import prices fall.
