16 What is monetary policy Monetary policy consists of regulation and control over the growth of money and credit in an attempt to pursue broad economic goals such as full employment, avoidance of inflation, and sustainable economic growth. Its principal tools are:.
17 Monetary policy tools 1. The Open-Market Policy Tool 2. The Discount Rate Policy Tool3. Changing Reserve Requirements on Deposits and Other Bank LiabilitiesThese tools aim at keeping unemployment low, inflation low and to ensure high economic growth
18 Open market operations consist of the buying and selling of securities by the central bank in an effort to influence and shape the course of interest rates and the growth of money and credit.therefore, affect bank deposits -- their volume and growth -- as well as the volume of lending and the interest rates attached to bank borrowings and loans as well as the value of bank stock.
19 OMO is the preferred tool, because it is also the Fed’s most flexible tool. It can be used every day and any mistakes can be quickly reversed.
20 Discount rate toolThe Discount Window is the department in each Federal Reserve Bank that receives requests to borrow reserves from banks and other depository institutions which are eligible to obtain credit from the Fed for short periods of time. The rate charged on such loans is called the discount rate.
