This paper uses the Structural Vector Autoregression (SVAR) to examine monetary policy of the Mexican Central Bank in the framework of standard assumption of neoclassical orthodoxy for the years 2000-2011. This research presents empirical evidence that Mexican monetary authorities reacted, in the short term, to face the crisis in countercyclical manner, thereby stimulating economic activity through monetary expansion accompanied by a slow reaction of the prices level, while in the long term the dynamics of the price level raised the interest rate, thereby diminishing the pace of economic activity.
