dc.description.abstract In this paper we assess the performance of optimal monetary policy rules including alternative financial variables, regarding their ability to stabilize the macro-economy following financial shocks. We use a model that comprises both a traditional and a shadow banking sector, which proved to be useful in understanding financial boom-bust episodes and allows for a wide spectrum of financial shocks and transmission mechanisms. Overall, we find that targeting financial stability – in particular credit growth – improves the stabilization of an economy facing financial shocks. The results do not depend qualitatively on the persistence of financial shocks, but the effectiveness of a policy rule targeting financial stability increases significantly when those shocks are persistent. en
