Abstract

In this paper we compare two mechanisms for implementing monetary policy: standing facilities and open market operations. We show that any equilibrium allocation that can be attained with open market operations can be replicated with standing facilities, but that the converse is not true. Furthermore, the set of equilibrium allocations that can be attained with standing facilities is weakly dominated in terms of welfare by the set of equilibrium allocations that can be attained with open market operations. However, if the central bank chooses the optimal policy for each mechanism, the allocations are equivalent.
