interest-rate rules. We discuss indeterminacy under money-growth rules in section 4. In section 5, we present monetary-policy rules that assure determinacy. Section 6 is a discussion of some implications of fiscal policy for determinacy. Concluding remarks areprovidedinsection7. an equilibrium price level at all. According to the well-known critique of Sargent and Wallace (), interest-rate rules as such are undesirable, as they lead to indeterminacy of the rational-expectations equilibrium price level. As McCallum () notes, however, their analysis assumes a rule that speci es an exogenous path for the short.

Downloadable (with restrictions). This paper reconsiders a result obtained by Sargent and Wallace, namely, that price level indeterminacy obtains in their well-known model if the monetary authorities adopt a policy feedback rule for the interest rate rather than the money stock.

Since the Federal Reserve seems often to have used the federal funds rate as its. The basic conclusions concerning price level indeterminacy will obtain with the constant interest rate replaced by any exogenous sequence of current and future interest rates.

Indeterminacy and interest rate rules 5 of the wage rate Wt and the price level Pt as of period t. Equation (1a) is a standard condition for the optimal leisure-consumption choice, which — since consumption is subject to a cash-in-advance constraint — is affected by the nominal rate of interest in period t, denoted by it 1.

Equation (1c) is. Esther Ejim Last Modified Date: J Price level and interest rate are linked together in the sense that the manipulation of the level of interest rates is one of the tools used by the central bank or government to control price levels in an economy.

The central bank in a country uses interest rates as one of its main tools for either increasing or decreasing price.

Second, Woodford’s fiscal theory of the price level, according to which for certain fiscal rules the (initial) price level is independent. Keywords: Indeterminacy, Interest Rate Rules, Small Open Economy, Terms of Trade.

Under a feedback rule that sets the nominal interest rate as a non-negative and non-decreasing function of the inflation rate, the price level is indeterminate for both low and high values of the.

Recent research has shown that forward-looking Taylor rules are subject to indeterminacy in New Keynesian models with capital and investment spending.

This paper shows that adopting a forward-looking Wicksellian rule that responds to the price level, rather than to inflation, is one potential remedy for the indeterminacy problem. 1. Introduction. The performance of alternative rules for interest rate setting by central banks of open economies has been the subject of increasing attention in the literature.

1 Interest rate rules can be used to achieve a variety of policy goals. Among these, properly designed interest rate rules can be consistent with maintaining exchange rate stability.

One is the standard textbook Taylor rule stating that the central bank adjusts nominal interest rates in response to inflation and to the level of the output gap (Galí,Chapter 3).

4 When used in a standard small-scale New Keynesian model with sticky prices and zero trend inflation, a rule complying with the Taylor Principle (coefficient. show that interest rate rules cause indeterminacy in equilibrium. where P is the price level of traded goods in home currency, E is the exchange rate (defined as the ψ) while the equilibrium is under indeterminacy if the monetary policy is passive (ψ′.

If the monetary authority adjusts the interest rate in response to deviations of the price level from a target path, then there is a unique equilibrium under.

interest rate and the natural real rate represents the key channel through which central bank actions affect the economy. Woodford correctly shows that there is no inconsistency in developing a theory of the general price level in which monetary policy is characterized by control of a nominal interest rate rather than control of the money supply.

If the rule is ̂ R t = r̂ t + τ E t ̂ t+1, en, for τ = 1, only expected inflation is pinned down, not so the distribution of inflation across states.

This paper characterizes the properties of various interest-rate rules in a basic forward. The central bank can determine the path of inflation, but that is the rate of change of the price level relative to an indeterminate initial level.

If the initial price level is fixed (that is, it was assumed to be fixed in the previous time step), then the valuation rule runs into difficulties.
