U.S. Monetary Policy Spillovers to GCC Countries: Do Oil Prices Matter?
  • 1 https://isni.org/isni/0000000404811396, International Monetary Fund
This paper provides empirical evidence that the size of the spillovers from U.S. monetary policy to non-oil GDP growth in the GCC countries depends on the level of oil prices. The potential channels through which oil prices could affect the effectiveness of monetary policy are discussed. We find that the level of oil prices tends to dampen or amplify the growth impact of changes in U.S. monetary policy on the non-oil economies in the GCC.
