About the Authors
  • Changes in the shape of the yield curve have traditionally been one of the key macroeconomic indicators of a likely change in economic outlook. However, the recent financial crises have created a challenge to the management of monetary policy, demanding a revision in the way that policymakers model expected changes in the economy. This volume brings together central bank economists and leading academic monetary economists to propose new methods for modelling the behaviour of interest rates. Topics covered include: the analysis and extraction of expectations of future monetary policy and inflation; the analysis of the short-term dynamics of money market interest rates; the reliability of existing models in periods of extreme market volatility and how to adjust them accordingly; and the role of government debt and deficits in affecting sovereign bond yields and spreads. This book will interest financial researchers and practitioners as well as academic and central bank economists.

    • Proposes new methods for modelling the behaviour of interest rates and analyses how the recent financial crises have changed the role of central banks in managing monetary policy
    • Features reflections from top academics and central bankers on the possible limitations of existing models and how to remedy them
    • Provides a picture of the current state of macro-finance research and suggests areas where new research is likely to be most productive

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The term structure of interest rates has always been at the nexus of monetary policy, macroeconomics and finance. The historic lows in policy interest rates since the onset of the crisis have exposed gaps in earlier models of the term structure, leading to new promising research that significantly enhances our understanding. This volume collects state of the art research on the term structure from the academic and policy communities, making it indispensable for both practitioners and policymakers who seek to deepen their knowledge of macro-finance during these challenging times.' Athanasios Orphanides, MIT Sloan School of Management

    'This volume examines the challenges posed by the global financial crisis for policymakers and macro-financial economists and shows how they have risen to these. Contributors focus upon the money and bond markets that lay at the centre of this crisis, playing an increasingly important role in the communication and transmission of monetary policy. They suggest new non-linear yield curve models and methods for extracting about future inflation, output and default risk. This volume provides essential reading for policymakers, practitioners and academics interested in the financial sector and the economy.' Peter Spencer, University of York

    'This timely conference volume addresses issues that are central to both the research agenda for macroeconomics and finance and to the decisions that policymakers will face as we emerge from the crisis.' Paul Tucker, Former Deputy Governor of the Bank of England
