The collaboration with the Austrian Economics continues on issues of major importance for the future of society.
What role, if any, is there for monetary policy in addressing the coronavirus (COVID-19) threat? The monetary policy discussion is narrower than a discussion of the role of the Central Banks during pandemics because the Central Banks has important responsibilities besides monetary policy.
Generally, the Central Banks are charged with promoting the safety, soundness and smooth functioning of the nations’ financial system. In current circumstances, however, their monetary policy and financial stability roles overlap. Some monetary policy strategies have greater potential than others to mitigate pandemic-related financial strains. Which ones are the most suitable to address the current economic crisis?
