The role of the monetary policy decisions in influencing markets and economies has increased sharply over the past 30 years. This new eBook presents the state of the art of the economics and politics of modern monetary policy governance as a story of two tales which are both parallel and intertwined: on the one side, the tale of how monetary policy decisions are reached; on the other side, the tale of how such decisions can influence the shape of the markets via central banks’ communication policies.

This book from OUP presents the results of the two-year RELTIF research programme, jointly developed by Assonime and CEPR, that brought together leading economists from around the world to examine whether finance and public policy contributed to the deep and prolonged decline in European investment after the financial crisis. The findings point consistently to the importance of debt overhang as a contributory factor and the role of both tax and regulatory policy in exacerbating the problems.
