Abstract

Following the approach suggested by Favero and Rovelli (2003), I estimate a three-equations system for different sub-samples for Peru. The results indicate that the preferences of the monetary authority have changed between the diffeerent regimes. In particular, the parameter associated to the implicit target of in‡ation has been reduced significantly. The macroeconomic conditions from the side of the aggregate demand have been more favorable than those related to the aggregate supply. The standard deviation of the monetary rule suggests that it has been conducted successfully in the last regime.
