The first of its kind, this book is entirely dedicated to the implementation of monetary policy. Monetary policy implementation has gone through tremendous changes over the last twenty years, which have witnessed the quiet end of 'reserve position doctrine' and the return of an explicit focuson short-term interest rates. Enthusiastically supported by Keynes and later by the monetarist school, reserve position doctrine was developed mainly by US central bankers and academics during the early 1920s, and at least in the US became the unchallenged dogma of monetary policy implementation for sixty years. The return ofinterest rate targeting also corresponds largely to the restoration of central banking principles established in the late 19th century.Providing a simple theory of monetary policy implementation, Bindseil goes on to explain the role of the three main instruments (open market operations, standing facilities, and reserve requirements) and reviews their use in the twentieth century. In closing, he summarizes current views on efficientmonetary policy implementation.
Ulrich Bindseil is Deputy Head of the Risk Management Division at the European Central Bank (ECB). Previously, he worked at the Deutsche Bundesbank and at the European Monetary Institute. From 2000 to 2004, he was Head of the ECB's Liquidity Management Section.
