Abstract

In contrast to previous literature, we show that it is possible to use interest rate rules in standard monetary models to implement equilibria that are globally unique. This is a contribution to a literature that either concentrates on conditions for local determinacy, or criticizes that approach showing that local determinacy might be associated with global indeterminacy. The interest rate rules we propose are price level targeting rules that respond to the forecasts of the future price level and future economic activity.
