Monetary policy transmission in an undeveloped South Pacific Island country: a case study of Samoa
Amongst the South Pacific's least developed small island countries, Samoa has emerged as a successful economy. Its achievements of low inflation and high growth rates have been due to sustained fiscal adjustment programmes and appropriate monetary policy measures. This paper undertakes an empirical study of transmission mechanism of monetary policy by adopting a VAR approach and using quarterly data over a 17-year period (1990-2006). The study findings are that money and exchange rate channels are important channels in transmitting monetary impulses to Samoa's output.
