Wood / Schmitz Institutional Change in the Payments System and Monetary Policy
Monetary policy has been at the centre of economic research from the early stages of economic thought, but payment system research has attracted increased academic attention only in the past decade. This book’s succeeds in merging these two so far largely separated fields.
Innovative and groundbreaking, Schmitz and Woods initiate research on the interdependence of institutional change in the payments system and monetary policy, examining the different channels via which payment systems affect monetary policy. It explores important themes such as:
conceptualization and methods of analysis of institutional change in the payments system
determinants of institutional change in the payments system – political-economy versus technology
empirics of institutional change in the retail and in the wholesale payments systems – policy initiatives and new technologies in the payments system
implications of institutional change in the payments system for monetary policy and the instruments available to central banks to cope with it.
The result is an accessible overview of conceptual and methodological approaches to institutional change in payment systems, and a comprehensive and yet thorough assessment of its implications for monetary policy. The insights this timely book provides will be invaluable for researchers and practitioners in the field of monetary economics.
