Monetary Policy Approaches Taking Into Consideration The Current Economic Context
Questions of interest among monetary policy makers involve the identification and analysis of various relationships between macroeconomic variables. To analyze these variables and their interrelations it is necessary to build a macroeconomic model which is based on a vector autoregressive, and in which exogenous shocks have impact on the study variables. How exogenous variables affect the variables of interest represent the transmission mechanisms. Estimates of the transmission mechanism have been considered traditionally, one of the major objectives of many macroeconomic studies. Such empirical researchers have obtained two major conclusions: first, that the transmission mechanism varies over time and the second is that the exogenous shocks change over time.
