The Interest Rate Channel in the New Monetary Policy Framework


  • A. Angeriz
  • Philip Arestis
  • John McCombie
  • Warren Mosler


Is the current consensus about monetary policy valid? As the authors see it, current monetary policy is designed to use interest rates as a control on longterm inflation. The authors assess the concept, summarize the empirical data, and find that the theory may not work. Supply shocks may cause most inflation, not demand.
