  5. 5. Monetary Policy <ul><li>“ Central banks in most developed economies usually describe their aims in terms of the pursuit of non-inflationary growth. </li></ul><ul><li>Today, there’s a consensus that price stability should be the overriding objective of monetary policy. </li></ul><ul><li>External Balance Goal: Maintain the exchange rate within a particular band. </li></ul><ul><li>Internal Balance Goal: Maintain the inflation rate within a particular band. </li></ul>
  6. 6. External Balance <ul><li>When there is an increase in the demand for the Dong; the market exchange rate strengthens and the exchange rate moves to the lower end of the established band, the Authority sells VND to banks. </li></ul><ul><li>The money base (supply) will increase, pushing down Vietnamese dollar interest rates. Lower domestic interest rates relative to foreign interest rates restrain capital inflows into the nation (encouraging outflows). </li></ul><ul><li>Supply of foreign currency decreases, weakening the currency to restore stability. </li></ul>

  10. 10. Inflation <ul><li>Inflation is more about value of money than value of goods. Ice cream is the same but when you pay more money becomes less valuable. </li></ul><ul><li>Inflation in an economy is a wide phenomenon that concerns with the value of currency in the economy. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Internal Balance <ul><li>Sale and purchase of government securities changes bank reserves and thus their ability to extend credit, thus changing the money supply and the interest rate. </li></ul><ul><li>The Monetary Authority targets interest rates by affecting system liquidity. </li></ul><ul><li>Monetary policy influences the size of bank reserves. This influences: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The size of the money supply. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The interest rate and the availability of credit. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Investment spending, interest-sensitive consumption spending thus output, employment and the price level. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Open Market Operations <ul><li>Monetary Authority actions designed to change interest rates by changing system liquidity to change the cost of credit and thus economic activity and the price level. </li></ul>

(Sale) </li></ul>
