主题一: 利率波动和宏观经济不确定性的期限结构

主题:Term Structure of Interest Rate Volatility and Macroeconomic Uncertainty(利率波动和宏观经济不确定性的期限结构)

主讲人:Drew D. Creal,芝加哥大学布斯商学院计量经济与统计学副教授

摘要:

We propose a new model of the yield curve to capture both the dynamics of their conditional mean and the term structure of interest rate volatilities. The new class of affine term structure models exhibits multiple unpriced stochastic volatility factors without imposing constraints on the conditional mean of yields. The common movement in the volatilities extracted from the model provides a new measure of economywide uncertainty, and we use it to study the impact uncertainty has on the macroeconomy. Towards the end of the Great Recession, uncertainty accelerated the zero lower bound for the short term interest rate, added to concerns over deflation, and contributed to higher unemployment rates.

主题二:衡量货币政策在零下界时对宏观经济的影响

主题:Measuring the Macroeconomic Impact of Monetary Policy at the Zero Lower Bound(衡量货币政策在零下界时对宏观经济的影响)

主讲人:Jing Cynthia Wu,芝加哥大学布斯商学院计量经济与统计学助理教授

摘要:

This paper employs an approximation that makes a nonlinear term structure model extremely tractable for analysis of an economy operating near the zero lower bound for interest rates. We show that such a model offers an excellent description of the data and can be used to summarize the macroeconomic effects of unconventional monetary policy at the zero lower bound. Our estimates imply that the efforts by the Federal Reserve to stimulate the economy since July 2009 succeeded in making the unemployment rate in December 2013 0.13% lower than it otherwise would have been.
