Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The global financial crisis plunged the global economy into a great recession. Many central banks responded with unconventional monetary policies—such as quantitative easing, negative policy rates, and forward guidance—to calm down financial markets. The COVID-19 pandemic led to the global economy, financial markets, and central banks facing even more severe problems. In particular, the ECB set up the pandemic emergency purchase programme (PEPP) to complement the asset purchase programmes that have been in place since 2014 to help the economy to absorb the COVID-19 shock. The new crisis has increased the importance of preserving financial stability through the international cooperation of central banks around the globe. Managing the expectations of market participants plays a crucial role in the context of financial stability. Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to disseminate important empirical and theoretical research questions concerning the connection between monetary policy and international financial markets, which might include (but is not limited to):

  • Monetary policy transmission in times of uncertainty;
  • QE effects on financial markets;
  • Negative interest rates and bank lending growth;
  • Contagion and spillovers;
  • Monetary policy in times of pandemic;
  • International coordination of monetary policy;
  • Anchoring of inflation expectations

The financial crisis of 2008 has caused a series of drawbacks to economies around the world. Greek economy has been hit twice at 2009, since its credibility worsened, provoking the implication of harsh fiscal measures from the 2010 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The effects of these measures to Greek macroeconomic figures have been widely criticized. Authors aim to estimate these effects at the macroeconomic figures of Greece through utilization of Decision Support Systems, and propose accurate insights regarding their efficacy. By capitalizing on regression analysis and Fuzzy Cognitive Mapping processes, specific results from 2010 Memorandum’s measures arise. It has been calculated that measures implied by 2010 Memorandum have been harsh and posed a negative effect on key Greek macroeconomic figures like GDPR, public debt, etc., especially with the ongoing 2008 financial crisis.
