Unanticipated monetary policy and real economic activity: Some cross-regime evidence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Classical equilibrium models of business cycles predict several consequences of policy regime shift. This paper examines these predictions, using evidence from the post-1979 period, and by comparing several pre-war monetary regimes. The policy-invariance proposition and the Lucas hypothesis receive some support from the evidence, although some discrepancies remain.
