Zero lower bound From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Zero Lower Bound (ZLB) or Zero Nominal Lower Bound (ZNLB) is a macroeconomic problem that occurs when the short-term nominal interest rate is at or near zero, causing a liquidity trap and limiting the capacity that the central bank has to stimulate economic growth. The zero bound can be a significant constraint on the ability of a central bank to combat deflation. We show, in the context of an intertemporal equilibrium model, that open-market operations, even of unconventional' types, are ineffective if they do not change expectations about the future conduct of policy; in this sense, a liquidity trap' is possible.

This paper assesses the size of the government‐spending multiplier in an open economy when the zero lower bound (ZLB) on the nominal interest rate is binding. In a theoretical framework, in a closed economy, other authors have shown that when the nominal interest rate is binding the government‐spending multiplier can be very large (close to four).

other central banks in the zero-bound era since The Fed’s “Operation Twist” of was an LSAP: though the U.S. was not at the zero bound, the Fed bought long-term Treasuries (in an attempt to lower long-term rates and stimulate real activity) while selling short-term Treasuries.

The Zero Bound in an Open Economy: A Foolproof Way of Escaping from a Liquidity Trap (). The Zero Bound in an Open Economy: A Foolproof Way of Escaping from a Liquidity Trap. By Lars E.O. Svensson. Abstract. The paper examines the transmission mechanism of monetary policy in an open economy with and without a binding zero bound on nominal interest rates.

In particular, a foolproof way of escaping from a liquidity trap is Author: Lars E.O. Svensson. The paper proposes three options for overcoming the zero bound on interest rate policy: a carry tax on money, open market operations in long bonds, and monetary transfers.

A variable carry tax on electronic bank reserves could enable a central bank to target negative nominal interest rates. The Zero Bound Problem is a monetary policy limitation that a central bank might encounter during a recession.

It occurs when the central bank lowers interest rates to 0% and would optimally lower them further, but cannot do so because it does not have the power to set a negative interest rate (if interest rates were negative, everyone would choose to hold their money as cash instead of investing it).

of hitting the zero bound calls for fundamental changes in the way that policy is conducted even when the bound has not yet been reached.

For example, Krugman () refers to deflation as a “black hole”, from which an economy cannot expect to escape once it has 1. get the economy out of the liquidity trap situation and doubts the effectiveness of any monetarist policies such asquantitative easing.
