Cost Channel, Interest Rate Pass-Through and Optimal Monetary Policy under Zero Lower Bound

Published By: Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research on | Published Date: May , 2016

This paper analyzes the optimal discretionary monetary policy under Zero Lower Bound (ZLB) for varying degree of interest rate pass-through. This paper finds that (i) exit date from ZLB becomes endogenous due to the trade-off between output gap and inflation introduced by the cost channel; (ii) presence of cost channel delays the exit from ZLB compared to models without cost channel; and (iii) exit date rises monotonically with the magnitude of demand shock and degree of interest rate pass-through.
