Publication Date: 01 June 2004

ISBN: 9781451851946

Keywords: Model Uncertainty, Policy Rules, central bank, probability, monetary policy rules, Game Theory and Bargaining Theory: General,

We provide a framework for analyzing the choice between optimal and robust monetary policy rules in the presence of paradigm uncertainty. We first discuss the conditions on uncertainty that render a robust rule pre...
