Central-bank intervention: recent literature, continuing controversy

Author

  • Owen F. Humpage

Abstract

A review of recent literature on central-bank intervention in exchange markets, finding some qualified support for the power of intervention to influence market expectations, but finding little evidence to support the interventionist policy the G-3 countries have conducted in recent years.
