Performance of monetary policy with internal central bank forecasting
Abstract: Recent models of monetary policy have analysed the
desirability of different optimal and ad hoc interest-rate rules under the
restrictive assumption that forecasts of the private sector and central
bank are homogeneous. In this paper, we study from a learning perspective
the implications of heterogeneity across forecasts by the central bank and
private agents for the performance of interest-rate rules.
