The NBU has published a new issue of the peer-reviewed journal "Visnyk of the National Bank of Ukraine". In the current issue, you can find the following research papers:
Adam Hashchyshyn (Kyiv School of Economics), Kateryna Marushchak (Kyiv School of Economics), Oleksandr Sukhomlyn (NBU), and Andrii Tarasenko (University of Mannheim), using meta-analysis methods, infer that increasing/decreasing the key policy rate can lead to appreciation/depreciation of the national currency, but only in the short term. The magnitude of this relationship depends on the level of monetary freedom and GDP per capita in a given country.
Olga Bondarenko (NBU) investigates the global financial cycle caused by co-movements in cross-border capital flows. The author concludes that the global common factor is of limited importance for capital flows, and domestic policy thus plays a key role in maintaining macroeconomic stability.
In the final article of this issue, Anatolii Hlazunov (NBU) and Olesia Verchenko (Kyiv School of Economics) proposed a model that successfully predicted the 2014–2015 crisis four quarters ahead of its onset. The authors also estimate the probability of default, which could signal vulnerability in a bank and in a financial system in general.
