The Urgent Need for a Review of the ECB's Monetary Policy Strategy: Towards an Institutional Review

15-11-2019

It has been sixteen years since the European Central Bank has undertaken a review of its monetary policy. In the intervening time, the world – and the economic challenges facing the ECB – have changed immensely. This paper argues that a review is overdue but that it should not be limited to policies; instead, an institutional review is needed. This would consist of a backward-looking assessment of outcomes versus mandates, coupled with a forward-looking scenario planning exercise. This document was ...

Priorities for Review of the ECB’s Monetary Policy Strategy

15-11-2019

Lower neutral rates of interest have eroded the policy space necessary to fight recessions. Against this backdrop, several central banks are re-assessing how their strategy and tools can be refined to best achieve their goals. The ECB should be no exception. Its strategy review should focus on redefining the inflation objective and on developing contingency plans for using its statutory authority creatively to achieve its mandate. This document was provided by Policy Department A for the European ...

Recommendations for the ECB’s Monetary Policy Strategy Review

15-11-2019

A review into monetary policy strategy, tools, and communications is underway at the Federal Reserve. The ECB’s new President has signalled support for a review of this sort for the Eurosystem. This paper considers five areas where a review of ECB monetary policy strategy could focus and makes recommendations in relation to each area. The five areas are price stability, the monetary pillar, liquidity provision, balance sheet risk and communications. Most importantly, it is recommended that the ECB ...

A review into monetary policy strategy, tools, and communications is underway at the Federal Reserve. The ECB’s new President has signalled support for a review of this sort for the Eurosystem. This paper considers five areas where a review of ECB monetary policy strategy could focus and makes recommendations in relation to each area. The five areas are price stability, the monetary pillar, liquidity provision, balance sheet risk and communications. Most importantly, it is recommended that the ECB adopt a 2 percent average inflation rate as its definition of price stability and remove the monetary pillar from its official monetary policy strategy. This document was provided by Policy Department A at the request of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs.

Thoughts on a Review of the ECB’s Monetary Policy Strategy

15-11-2019

Time is ripe for a review of the ECB strategy: the economic context and the audience for communication have changed, and the tools for policy decisions and for analysing the environment have expanded. The definition of the inflation target, the two-pillar strategy and the use of “non-standard” policy measures need discussion. A change in the ECB mandate is also worth discussing for it would permit to evaluate the current strategy and mandate against an alternative. This document was provided by Policy ...

The Two-pillar Strategy of the ECB: Ready for a Review

15-11-2019

Inflation has remained below the ECB’s own target of ‘below, but close to 2%’ for a long time despite massive doses of unconventional policies, suggesting that the present ‘two pillar’ strategy does not work. A review of the strategy will be useful only if it is entrusted to independent experts. Otherwise, it is likely to result in the finding that only marginal changes to the existing strategy are needed and that larger doses of the present policy will be sufficient to achieve the inflation target ...

Challenges ahead for the European Central Bank: Navigating in the Dark?

16-09-2019

Monetary policy must reinvent itself in the wake of the crisis. Reinvention is particularly important because the system is riddled with uncertainties and the scope for applying conventional and unconventional instruments is limited. The architecture of Economic and Monetary Union makes the challenge even greater, because alignment of preferences and policies only goes so far. The European Central Bank (ECB) will have to be clearer on what it can do, while remaining flexible in order to manage uncertainties ...

Reinvention is particularly important because the system is riddled with uncertainties and the scope for applying conventional and unconventional instruments is limited. The architecture of Economic and Monetary Union makes the challenge even greater, because alignment of preferences and policies only goes so far. The European Central Bank (ECB) will have to be clearer on what it can do, while remaining flexible in order to manage uncertainties and unknowns. While the ECB’s main objective is price stability, it will also have to contribute to the identification of, and response to, financial imbalances, while preserving its independence.
