The Simple Geometry of Transmission and Stabilization in Closed and Open Economies
Title: The Simple Geometry of Transmission and Stabilization in Closed and Open Economies
Series/Number: CEPR Discussion Paper; 5080
This paper provides an introduction to the recent literature on macroeconomic stabilization in closed and open economies. We present a stylized theoretical framework, and illustrate its main properties with the help of an intuitive graphical apparatus. Among the issues we discuss: optimal monetary policy and the welfare gains from macroeconomic stabilization; international transmission of real and monetary shocks and the role of exchange rate pass-through; the design of optimal exchange rate regimes and monetary coordination among interdependent economies.
