Monetary Policy in a Channel System

  • Aleksander Berentsen
  • Cyril Monnet

Channel systems for conducting monetary policy are becoming increasingly popular. Despite their popularity, the consequences of implementing policy with a channel system are not well understood. We develop a general equilibrium framework of a channel system and investigate the optimal policy. A novel aspect of the channel system is that a central bank can "tighten" or "loosen" its policy without changing its target rate by increasing the interest-rate spread symmetrically around the target rate. This questions the characterization of optimal policy through interest-rate rules, as done in a large body of the literature on the optimal design of interest-rate rules.
