Example text

The first debate about the role of asset prices for monetary policy concerns the importance of asset prices for smoothing inflation and output growth. The overall conclusion of this debate is summarized by Smets (1997) and Disyatat (2005): If asset-price misalignments (bubbles) can be identified and if they provide relevant information about future inflation and future growth, it may be useful to include them in the reaction function to “achieve the optimal price level” and growth rate. Central banking, asset prices, and financial fragility 21 The Bank of International Settlements (1997) concluded that asset prices are good indicators of future inflation and output growth.

Some authors, however, would put much more emphasis on financial factors and argue that financial stability should be the main goal of a central bank. Again, in order to get a better understanding of the position held by the Post-Keynesian school, its basic theoretical framework is presented. Central banking, asset prices, and financial fragility 27 What is the Post-Keynesian school of thought? King (2002) and Lee (2000, 2002) have studied the origins of the Post-Keynesian school of thought. The Post-Keynesian approach of economics may be considered to start with Keynes’s General Theory and following articles, even though some authors would start earlier with Sraffa’s and Kahn’s contributions in the 1920s.

As Keynes says, the recommendations of Classical economists ignore this: Nor are they based on indirect effects due to a lower wages-bill in terms of money having certain reactions on the banking system and the state of credit. (Keynes 1936a: 11) Actually, the improvement in the financial position is not necessary to conclude that workers are better off. Say that CC is also doubled so that CC/P and W /P are unchanged, still, providing that consumption level is at a comfortable level (and so could be adjusted downward without much consequences), the situation of workers has improved financially because their financial position is more liquid, and so bankers will consider them as safer because they have a bigger monetary buffer (W − CC = $6).
