## Zero bound on interest rates and optimal monetary policy

The presence of a zero lower bound on nominal interest rates and the implications of this bound for unconventional monetary policy is another source of nonlinearity among inflation, employment and of the zero lower bound on nominal interest rates for the optimal conduct of monetary policy, in the context of an explicitly intertemporal equilib-rium model of the monetary transmission mechanism. However, a credible commitment to the right sort of history-dependent policy can largely mitigate the distortions created by the zero bound. In the model, optimal policy involves a commitment to adjust interest rates so as to achieve a time-varying price-level target, when this is consistent with the zero bound. However, a credible commitment to the right sort of history-dependent policy can largely mitigate the distortions created by the zero bound. In the model, optimal policy involves a commitment to

## This paper characterizes the optimal monetary policy reaction function in the presence of a zero lower bound on the nominal interest rate. We analytically prove and numerically show that the function is highly non-linear, more expansionary, and more aggressive than the Taylor rule.
