Central banking after the great recession

Have Central Banks lost their ability to control domestic inflation? Are macroprudential tools sufficient to ensure financial stability? Do new monetary tools, a closer relationship with fiscal policy and the renewed financial stability mandate require a new central banking paradigm?

Date: January 18, 2016, 10:30 am Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

Old theories in monetary policy are being challenged and macroprudential policy is ever more important. This two-session workshop addressed the place of central banks in the post-crisis economy.

Session 1: Macroprudential policy and its relationship with monetary policy: the complex European framework

Macroprudential policy has two main goals: to increase the resilience of the financial system and to tame the financial cycle with more targeted tools than monetary policy. These measure can be tailored to country-specific circumstances, which is especially important in a heterogeneous monetary union. However, macroprudential policies are new and still under construction, especially in advanced economies. Are macroprudential tools sufficient to ensure financial stability? Could the complex European set-up make their implementation less effective?

Session 2: After the crisis, the evolving role of central banks

Do we have to re-open the institutional design question we had thought we had solved establishing independent central bank moving interest rates in the pursuit of price stability? Do new monetary tools, a closer relationship with fiscal policy and the renewed financial stability mandate require a new central banking paradigm?

Dial N for NAIRU, or not?

What’s at stake: The concept of the NAIRU (Non-Accelerating Inflation Rate of Unemployment) has recently divided the minds in the economic blogosphere. We review the most important contributions on its usefulness, its shortcomings, alternatives and we discuss why it is such a contested concept.

EBA relocation should support a long-term ‘twin peaks’ vision

As the Commission launches a review of European financial supervision, the authors argue that Europe needs to move towards a twin peaks model – dividing supervision of prudential and conduct-of-business issues. But this is a long-term vision, and will require institution building. The immediate priorities are to choose a new home for the EBA and reinforce ESMA.

Who would bet on currency unions after EMU crisis?

The European Monetary Union (EMU) was founded with the idea that nominal convergence would bring real convergence, but structural differences between members have proven wide enough to generate lasting asymmetric negative shocks across the euro area.

Why was the last TLTRO take-up unexpectedly high?

The final round of TLTRO financing was an unexpected hit with euro area banks. The aim of the programme is to encourage banks to increase lending to the real economy. However, with many now expecting a hike in deposit rates, banks’ enthusiasm might be driven largely by the chance to make a profit from the cheap loans.
