  • Beating the Inflation Dragon
  • If The Economy Is Exceeding The FE GDP Speed Limit Of 4% -
  • “ When the party gets too good, it’s the job of the Fed to take away the punch bowl.” The Fed’s policy is “If you see inflation, its too late. Whip it before it gets out of the box.” During a recession, the Fed is happy to “spike the punch.”

    • “ Despite these concerns, and in the final analysis,
    • the more preponderous weight of evidence considered in these deliberations falls on the side of a matrimonial rapproachement. I am prepared to act on these conclusions where warranted, with your consent, in a way that is consistent with my role as chairman of the Federal Reserve.”
    This was Fedspeak for, “Will You Marry Me?”

  • GOALS OF MONETARY POLICY … to assist the economy in achieving a full employment , non-inflationary level of output
  • 1. Open Market Operations - “nuts and bolts” of M onetary P olicy [main tool] - $60-$70 billion every day Three Tools Of Monetary Policy
  • 2. Reserve Requirement - most powerful (seldom used) - affects money creation by changing ER and the multiplier - an increase of ½ of 1 % would increase bank reserves by over $5 billion - RR was 20% from 1937-1958 Sledgehammer of M onetary P olicy RR - Atomic Bomb of Monetary Policy
  • Reserve Requirement Example Suppose the banking system has $500 billion in DD. The RR is 12% & TR are $60 billion , which is 12% of the $500 bilion DD . So, there are no ER . Now, the Fed lowers the RR to 10% . Now banks are required to keep only $50 bil . in RR. So, $10 billion more ER is available to loan out. $10 billion X 10 = $100 billion in new DD . So, 20% increase MS [DD] from $500 to $600 b illion . Atomic Bomb of Monetary Policy
  • $10,000 [$9,000+$1,000] [In 1980 , the RR was set at 12% ; stayed there until 1992 ; went to 10% ] “ E asy M oney ” AS AD 1 AD 2 Y R Y * PL $1,000 Initial deposit $900 [$900x10] $1,000 $810 $729 Monetary Expansion [10% RR] [1/.10=10] “ Easy Money” The Reserve Requirement “ Easy Money” – increase the money supply
  • $5,000 [$4,000+$1,000] “ Tight Money” - decrease the money suply RR at 20% - Tight Money Monetary Expansion (20% RR) [1/.20=M D of 5] “ Tight Money” $1,000 Initial deposit $800 $640 $512
  • 3. Discount Rate - emergency Fed loans to banks - symbolic (raises Prime Rate ) - Discount Rate was 1% from 1934-46 and the prime rate was 1.5% Hurricane EarthQuake FL borrowed $99 million In 1991 The Fed tends to change the D.R. in lockstep with the fed funds target rate.
  • Part of Uncle Sam’s Menu

  • Monetary Policy At Work During this period, 1990-1992, the Fed did 4 things : 1. Decreased discount rate from 10% to 3%; 2. Decreased the RR from 12% to 10%; 3. Decreased the Fed Funds Rate 24 times, and 4. Bought bonds
  • Fed Funds Rate 1993-2004 3% May, 2005
  • Relative Importance of Monetary Policy Relative Importance of Monetary Policy A. WWII - 1979 – Fed targeted the interest rate not the growth of MS. B. 1979-1982 – Fed targeted the growth of the MS not the in. rate. C. 1982-Present -Fed targets the interest rate , not the MS. 1. Discount Rate – not a primary tool of monetary policy. It does have an “announcement effect.” 2. Reserve Requirement ( 10 %)- has changed one time in 2 decades (12% to 10% in 1992). It would affect bank profits so is seldom used . 3. Open-market operations – evolved as the most effective tool of monetary policy because of flexibility . Securities can be bought or sold in large amounts & their impact on reserves is very prompt. Effectiveness of Monetary Policy Strengths of Monetary Policy 1. Speed and flexibility –can quickly be altered (compared to fiscal policy). This can occur on a daily basis and influence interest rates and the MS. 2. Isolation from political pressures – because of the 14 year terms. They can enact unpopular policies which might be best for our economy’s health .
  • Also, the Keynesians don’t think the lower interest rate is as important as “profit expectations.” Y R Y * D m(K) Investment Demand 10 % 8 % 6 % 0 Money Market QID 1 QID 2 M onetarist V iew of Transmission Mechanism v.

MS 1 K eynesian view is that D I is rather steep so monetary policy is not that strong. F iscal policy is “top banana.” AS AD 1 AD 2
  • Cyclical Asymmetry ( lack of balance ) – “ Tight money during inflations is more effective than easy money policy during a depressions.” a. An easy money policy during depression does not guarantee that people will take out loans if they don’t have jobs. [“You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.”] b. The cyclical asymmetry has not created a major difficulty for monetary policy except during times of depression . c. Velocity of money may increase during inflation when the fed is trying to decrease the MS & decrease during recession when the Fed is trying to increase MS. d. The lower interest rates during recession & depreciation of the dollar may cause foreign investors to pull their money out of the U.S. and reduce the MS . e. Banks may hold their ER or the public may hold too much currency . f. D m curve may be more flat so that interest rate will not drop as much , or the D I curve may be more vertical so that investment will not increase as much . Shortcomings and Problems of Monetary Policy But – I will eat spiked brownies.

  • NS 48-58 ( MS = DD + Currency of Public ) 48. The 3 tools of monetary policy are open market operations, changes in RR, & (changes in T/changes in G/ changes in discount rate). 49. T he main tool of the Fed in regulating the MS is (open-market operations/DR/RR). 50. When the Fe d [ $$ ] sells securities to the PUBLIC [T-bills], DD (don’t change/incr/decr) & banking system RR, ER & TR (incr/decr). 51. When the Fed [T-bills] buys securities from commercial banks [ $$ ], DD (don’t change/increase/decrease) & ER and TR (increase/decrease). 52. When the commercial banking system [ $$ ] borrows from the Fed , DD (don’t change/increase/decrease) but ER & TR (incr/decr). 53. W hen commercial banks [ $$ ] sell government securities to the Fed [T-bills], DD (don’t change/incr/decr) but their ER & TR (do not change/incr/decr). 54. When the PUBLIC [T-bills] buys securities from the Fed [ $$ ], DD (don’t change/incr/decr) and RR, ER, & TR of banks (don’t change/incr/decr). 55. When a commercial bank gets a loan from the Fed , their lending ability (incr/decr). 56. Assume that the RR is 25% & the Thunder Bank borrows $100,000 from the Fed ., commercial bank ERs are increased $________. PMC in the banking system are increased by $_______. TMS can be as much as $________. 57. The (margin requirement/discount rate) specifies the size of the down payment on stock purchases . 58. If the Fed were to increase the RR [10% to 20%] we would expect (higher/lower) interest rates, a (reduced/expanded) GDP and (appreciation/depreciation) of the dollar. [less “C”, “Ig”, & “Xn”] 100,000 400,000 400,000
  • NS 57-66 59. When the RR is increased [10 % to 50 % ] , the ER of member banks are (increased/decreased) and the monetary multiplier is (incr/decr). 60. Assume the RR is 25% and the Fed buys $4 M of bonds from the public . The MS is increased by ($3/$4/) million and the PMC is increased by ($16/$12) M. Potential TMS is ($3/$4/$12/$16) M. 61. When the Fed lends to commercial banks , this is called the (Fed Funds Rate/discount rate) and when commercial banks make loans to one another, this is the (Fed Funds Rate/ Discount Rate). 62. The Keynesian cause-effect chain of an easy money policy would be to (buy/sell) bonds; which would (increase/decrease) the MS, which would (lower/raise) interest rates & (incr/decr) I g , “C”, Xn, & Y. 63. If the Fed were to buy government securities in the open market , we would anticipate (lower/higher) interest rates, an (expanded/contracted) GDP, and (appreciation/depreciation) of the dollar. 64. If the Fed were reducing demand-pull inflation , the proper policies would be (lower/raise) the discount rate, (lower/raise) the RR and ((buy/sell) government bonds. 65. Monetary policy is thought to be more effective in (controlling inflation/ fighting depressions) and fiscal is more effective (controlling inflation/ fighting depressions). 66.The “net export effect” of an “easy” money policy (strengthens/ weakens) that policy, while the “net export effect” of “expansionary” fiscal policy (strengthens/weakens) that policy.

If AD is AD3 , what must the Fed do to get to AD2(FE GDP [Y*]) ? (increase/decrease) the MS from ($120/$140) to ($100/$120). 68. If the MS is MS1 , & the goal of the Fed is FE GDP [ Y* ], they should (increase/decrease) the MS from ($100/$120) to ($120/$140). 69. Which of the following would shift the MS curve from MS3 to MS2 ? (buying/selling) bonds. 70. If the MS is MS2 and the goal of the Fed is FE GDP of Y* , they should (increase/decrease/don’t change) the Ms. NS 67-70
  • NS 71-72 71. An easy money policy will (apprec/deprec) the dollar & (incr/decr) U.S. Xn. A tight money policy will (apprec/deprec) the dollar & (incr/decr) U.S. Xn. 72. If the economy were in a severe recession , proper monetary policy would call for (lowering/raising) the discount rate, (lowering/raising ) the RR, & (buying/selling) bonds. Proper fiscal policy would be to (incr/decr) “G” & (incr/decr) “T”, both of which would result in a bugetary (deficit/surplus).
