To Fed Watch or Not to Fed Watch: Equilibrium Analysis of Bank System Dynamics
Social Science Research Network
We build a model economy in which Fed watching occurs. There is a huge number of blogs, financial letters, and news reporting that talks about what the Federal Reserve is likely to do. We model this behavior by allowing for banks to Fed watch, meaning that the bank will apply a costly forecasting technology to predict next period's price level. Here, the banks accept deposits to insure against idiosyncratic liquidity shocks. Within this model economy, we characterize the price-level dynamics.doi:10.2139/ssrn.3012056 fatcat:wfyuuw5axrfltg2gpg3rxnr5hy
