The Real Exchange Rate in Taylor Rules: A Re-Assessment (2016)
Examining three flexible inflation targeting strategies, we find that a small concern for real exchange rate stability as a policy goal matters. First, it warrants the inclusion of the real exchange rate in Taylor rules and, second, it is sufficient to improve the performance of Taylor rules relative to optimal policy. Gains are substantial for domestic and REX inflation targets because a small weight on real exchange rate fluctuations makes optimal policy less aggressive. The gains under CPI inflation targeting are considerably lower.

International Evidence on the Role of Monetary Policy in the Uncovered Interest Rate Parity Puzzle Guender, A.V. (University of Canterbury. Department of Economics and Finance, 2015)CPI inflation targeting necessitates a flexible exchange rate regime. This paper embeds an endogenous target rule into a simple open economy macro model to explain the UIP puzzle. The model predicts that the change in the ...
Guender, A.V. (College of Business and EconomicsUniversity of Canterbury. Department of Economics and Finance, 2011)Employing an optimizing framework, this paper shows that a target rule dominates a simple instrument rule when the focus of monetary policy is on CPI inflation. The target rule approach produces a systematic relationship ...
