Abstract

This paper investigates how European Central Bank (ECB) monetary policy shocks impact industrial production (output) and inflation (prices). I gather a novel dataset of macroeconomic forecasts, and using a narrative approach, I construct a new measure of monetary policy shocks. Industrial production responds to an unpredictable positive monetary policy shock of 100 basis points with a decline of over 0.5%. On the contrary, inflation responds weakly with a very modest decrease of 0.05%.
