Introduction to Part III

Introduction to Part III

(p.265) Chapter 14 Introduction to Part III
Monetary Policy in Sub-Saharan Africa

Andrew Berg

Oxford University Press

Part III of the book presents various applications of quantitative dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models to SSA countries. Unlike the previous chapters, which provided broad guidance, the emphasis here is on specific policy questions faced by the country under study and on quantitative guidance for central banks. Each chapter mixes theory and data, along with close attention to the broader economic context. In addition to summarizing the results in the rest of Part III, this overview chapter describes the collaboration between IMF staff and staff in central banks in the region that resulted in the material in Part III. It also explains the eclectic approach used in building and using these models, as well as the relationship between these models and those of Part II.

Keywords:   Economic models, monetary policy, DSGE models, semi-structural models, sub-Saharan Africa, low-income countries, developing countries
