We focus on two approaches. First, we show that a non-Markovian, reputational equilibrium that implements the commitment solution always exists. Second, we show how delegation to a policy-maker with an additional objective for the policy instrument can be used to implement the commitment solution via a standard discretionary Markov equilibrium. Implementation is facilitated by the fact that the commitment outcome can be attained irrespective of the weight that the policy-maker assigns to the additional target. Using the standard new Keynesian model as an example, we study the dynamics of the economy under optimal additional output targets as well as optimal interest-rate targets for central banks.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Hahn, Volker</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-11-02T07:50:41Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-11-02T07:50:41Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2022-06-13</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Implementing the commitment solution via discretionary policy-making</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
