Does monetary policy lose effectiveness during a credit crunch?

  • Bijapur, Mohan

Abstract

This article investigates the effectiveness of monetary policy during a credit crunch by estimating a vector autoregression on the US economy. We present evidence that interest rate cuts have a diminished impact on growth, due to impairment in the relationship between monetary policy and the supply of intermediated credit.
