These are extraordinary times for monetary policy. Quantitative easing is unprecedented in scale and duration, and interest rates have dipped to historical lows. Prudential frameworks are also being amended and the long-run impact of these policies is uncertain. On 16-17 December 2013, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand will host a conference on monetary policy in open economies. This conference aims to bring together recent work examining the transmission of monetary and macro-prudential policies and their effectiveness in open economies.
