Instruments Of Monetary Policy In China And Their Effectiveness: 1994–2006

Abstract

China’s monetary policy applies to two sets of monetary policy instruments: (i) instruments of the Central Bank (CB), the People’s Bank of China (PBC); and (ii) non-Central Bank (NCB) policy instruments. Additionally, the PBC’s instruments include: (i) price-based indirect; and (ii) quantity-based direct instruments. The simultaneous usage of these instruments leads to various distortions that ultimately prevent the interest rate channel of monetary transmission from functioning. Moreover, the strong influence of quantity-based direct instruments and non-central bank policy instruments bring into question the approach of indirect monetary policy in general.
