Event Code : MP2B Date : 10.07.2017 to 14.07.2017
Venue : Indonesia Co-ordinator :
Host : Bank Indonesia


 

In recent years, the globalization of international finance and the increased integration of emerging markets into the international monetary and financial systems has had major implications for the conduct of monetary policy. As such, the monetary transmission mechanism depends more and more on global factors that influence domestic credit, exchange rates, and long-term interest rates. Moreover, monetary as well as financial stability considerations now include an assessment of the behavior of global banks that extend credit internationally as well as of international investors that purchase debt securities issued by firms in emerging markets. All of these factors have led to a lively debate whether emerging market economies’ central banks have diminished control over domestic monetary and financial conditions. This course will cover these developments and bring the participants to the forefront of the theoretical and policy debates.      

 
Objectives: At the end of the course, participants will be able to: (1) analyze different facets of financial globalization, monetary and financial spillovers, and their consequences for monetary and financial stability; (2) recognize the changes that have taken place in the implementation of monetary policy and liquidity management; (3) use empirical tools to evaluate the channels of monetary policy transmission; and, (4) quantify the changes in interest rate pass-through as a result of these developments.          
 
Target Participants: Experienced senior economists or technical staff from central banks or monetary authorities who are actively involved in research on monetary policy transmission mechanisms. They are also expected to have excellent quantitative skills and extensive experience using computer programs such as EViews.
