Conditions for Effective Macroprudential Policy Interventions
This paper constructs a new database that documents the use of a large number of macroprudential policy (MPP) instruments for 61 economies over 2000–2016.
The dataset is used to introduce a practical way of defining effective MPP interventions on the basis of the observed stability implications in their target indicators and for analyzing macroeconomic conditions that promote effective MPP interventions. These are more likely to happen if several measures are implemented credibly and in tandem. The paper finds that monetary tightening overrides the effectiveness of MPP instruments. Output gap, credit cycle, external debt, current account, and global risk appetite also count for the likelihood of the effectiveness of MPP interventions.
