Theoretical conditions under which monetary policies are effective and practical obstacles to their verification
We derive (i) necessary and sufficient and (ii) sufficient conditions for monetary policies to conform to what the literature characterizes as good policies. We show that the biasing effects of omitted variables, measurement errors, and misspecifications of “true” functional forms on the coefficients of monetary-policy reaction functions present practical obstacles to verifying such conditions.
