The events since 2007 have provided a significant challenge to the orthodox settlement on monetary and fiscal policy. A policy framework based on a broad inflation targeting regime (including targets for output and employment) appeared to be very successful in reducing the volatility of inflation and output (the so-called Great Moderation). With fiscal policy operating to help smooth the business cycle somewhat with automatic stabilisers. However, following the financial storm, the zero interest rate floor was found to act as a significant constraint on interest rate policy and subsequently many cracks in the financial architecture appeared, and led to the use of alternative or complementary instruments of policy. There has also been an extensive debate on the extent that we may need to develop further instruments of monetary policy to complement financial regulation and possibly deal with structural questions such as global imbalances.
A new Science of Monetary Policy Making had replaced the Art of Central Banking and a generation of economists and policy-makers now consider the monetary policy problem from within the narrow confines of short term interest rate targeting.
