Monetary policy in a world of knowledge-based growth, quality change, and uncertain measurement ( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 176 libraries worldwide
As the development of the knowledge economy gathers speed, the fundamental structure of the global economy is undergoing drastic changes in the movement from tangible goods to a virtual output. At the same time, growing uncertainty in the stability of the markets has made monetary policy more difficult. The contributors to this book discuss the implications of our industrial past, the characteristics of information goods and their impact, the mis-measurement of price, the impact of current innovation on economic growth and the labour market, and optimal monetary policy in such circumstances. Leading economists contribute their ideas to the debate surrounding policymaking for the knowledge economy

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
Abstract: According to the efficient market hypothesis, news in Tokyo is responsible for the exchange rate changes during the Tokyo market hours, while the U.S. news is responsible for changes in the New York hours. The intra-daily dynamics of the $/yen exchange rate from December 1931 to November 1933 is analyzed. Japan's decision to go off gold in December 1931 depreciated yen by 30% in a month, mostly in the Tokyo market. During 1932, the yen depreciated another 30%, mainly due to Japan's aggression in China and resulting diplomatic isolation. In 1933, the yen appreciated against the dollar, mainly in the New York market, due to the U.S. decision to go off gold. However, exchange rate volatility and its sensitivity to news declined over the two year period, because of increasing capital controls. Changes in the interest rate differential was found insignificant for the changes in the exchange rate. Political regime changes, such as a decision to go off gold, most influenced the exchange rate for the period considered. There were no policy decisions by Japan to cause yen depreciation to promote export and limit import in 1931-33

Policy duration effect under zero interest rates : an application of wavelet analysis by Kunio Okina( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
A major feature of recent monetary policy in Japan has been heavy reliance on the so-called policy duration effect. This policy employs a commitment to compensate for the central bank’s inability to lower the interest rate below zero by altering the anticipated course of monetary policy actions. This paper analyzes the behavior of the yield curve and examines the effectiveness and limitations of monetary policy commitment under zero interest rates with four indicators for policy duration effect. Specifically, we extend our previous study (Okina and Shiratsuka (2003)) by applying wavelet analysis to indicators for policy duration effect. As in the previous study, the policy duration effect was found to be highly effective in stabilizing market expectations for the path of short-term interest rates, thereby reducing longer-term interest rates and flattening the yield curve. The policy duration effect, however, failed to reverse deflationary expectations in financial markets
