International Spillover Effects and Monetary Policy Activism
This paper examines how the preferences of a large economy’s central bank affect the trade-off between output and inflation volatility faced by the central bank of a small open economy by analysing the impact of a global cost-push shock. We demonstrate that under the assumption of producer currency pricing, the trade-off faced by the small open economy is likely to worsen as the foreign central bank becomes more focused on output stabilisation relative to inflation stabilisation; but the opposite is true in the case of local currency pricing.
