Optimal non-linear monetary policy rules


  • Virginie Boinet
  • Christopher Martin


We propose a simply yet flexible framework for the analysis of optimal monetary policy rules that produces the type of non-linear responses derived in the literature as special cases. Perhaps more importantly, our framework suggests a richer set of nonlinear responses than have been considered yet and thus may prompt further work in this area.
