The Response of Short-Term Interest Rates to Weekly Money Announcements
The response of short-term interest rates to weekly money announcements since the Federal Reserve's change in operating procedures on October 6, 1979, is examined in this paper. The results indicate that the response increased significantly since October 1979, and that it varies nonlinearly according to the relation of money growth to the Federal Reserve!s long-run targets. The results also suggest that the increase in the response and the rise in the volatility of unanticipated money have contributed about equally to the large rise in interest rate volatility during this period.
