Webinar: John H. Cochrane on the role of central banks

Central bank independence in monetary policy was hard fought and desperately needed. The deal was simple. Central government would stay out of a Reserve Bank’s way as it dealt with monetary policy, and the Bank would not abuse its independence in pursuing other agendas.

That deal is fraying badly, if it has not fundamentally broken. If central bank independence in monetary policy is lost as consequence, rebuilding the institutions will be costly.

John H. Cochrane is Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute.

Fiscal Theory of the Price Level – Lecture by John H. Cochrane

EUI Economics and Pierre Werner Chair Lecture – Recording of the online event on 13 May 2021.

In this lecture, Professor Cochrane gives a brief overview of the Fiscal Theory of the Price Level, based on the book draft by the same name. The fiscal theory states that money is valued because the government stands ready to soak up money with taxes. It provides an alternative foundation to standard monetarism or new-Keynesian models based on interest rate targets. During this seminar Professor Cochrane develops the basic idea, shows how to apply it, and how to adapt standard models to fiscal theory. The audience is then guided through the data, understanding the roots of inflation, and the zero bound episode.

Inflated Health Care Costs: The Curse of Cross-Subsidies w/John H. Cochrane | Perspectives on Policy

Cross-subsidies exist when the government allows companies to overcharge one set of consumers in order to subsidize others. Cross-subsidies require the government to enforce monopolies to stifle new competition that would otherwise offer lower prices. Innovation suffers and prices rise as a result. A more effective way to lower health care prices is to tax and spend on budget using market prices.

Line of Inquiry: John H. Cochrane on how to prevent financial crises

Review.chicagobooth.edu | Many economists and policy makers agree the US financial system has gotten safer since the 2008-10 financial crisis. But is it safe enough? John H. Cochrane, senior fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and distinguished senior fellow at Chicago Booth, says what’s made us safer is the obligation of banks to hold more capital—but they still don’t hold enough to make us immune from crisis. Cochrane suggests offering the most well-capitalized banks a regulatory reward—namely, less regulation—and keeping the regulatory pressure on those banks that prefer to remain highly leveraged. Making banks even safer should be a priority, Cochrane says, because the next crisis may well be more severe, and more difficult to resolve.
