Course on Monetary Policy, May 8 -19, 2017

This course, presented by the IMF’s Institute for Capacity Development, is an overview policy course focused on monetary policy regimes, monetary transmission mechanism, and the role of monetary policy in macroeconomic stabilization. The course bridges the gap between theory, empirical evidence, and operational experience, by conveying the optimization problems and tradeoffs involved in monetary policy decisions. The learning progresses from lectures introducing the underlying concepts to hands-on workshops. Relevant case studies are used to reinforce participants’ understanding and to help them compare, contrast, and assess various experiences.
