|Dates:||August 17-21, 2009|
|Description:||Study Center Gerzensee Advanced Doctoral Summer Course on Monetary Theory and Policy|
|Location:||Gerzensee, Study Center Gerzensee, Switzerland|
|Subject:||The course will review the foundations of the new neoclassical synthesis (new Keynesian) model of monetary policy, and the nature of welfare-maximizing interest rate policy in the new synthesis model. It will address the determination of the exchange rate, the trade balance, international capital flows, and global interest rates with the NNS model. The course will interpret actual monetary policy with the NNS model, covering the great inflation drift, the inflation scare problem, a devaluation scare, the Volcker disinflation, the Greenspan era, and the practical case for inflation targeting. It will explore the origin and nature of the 2007-9 credit turmoil, and examine several issues regarding central bank credit policy as distinct from monetary policy, including interest on reserves, what assets a central bank should buy, and an accord for credit policy. It will introduce money and banking into the NNS model, and assess the capacity of monetary policy to act against deflation and recession at the zero bound on nominal interest rates.
