Macroeconomics – Monetary Policy
The decision to raise (or lower) interest rates affects many people directly. In the media, mortgage holders are often singled out as those with most to worry about. However, monetary policy decisions have far wider implications than merely hitting the pockets of homeowners.
Monetary policy refers to actions undertaken by a central bank to influence the availability and cost of money and credit in an attempt to achieve national economic objectives. This course explains the fundamentals of monetary policy, the instruments used by central bankers to implement it, and how its effects seep through to the entire economy.
On completion of this course, you will be able to:
• Explain how the interaction of money demand and money supply leads to the determination of the equilibrium interest rate
• Describe the workings of the different instruments that can be used by central banks to implement monetary policy
