Abstract

This study is aimed at investigating the effects of monetary policymaking on the short-term and long-term interest rates for the Brazilian economy for the period August 1999 to March 2011. It is shown that the reversal of the current account deficit and the alleviation of political uncertainties in 2003 affect the impact of monetary policy on market interest rates. In particular, it is observed that surprises in policymaking are substantially reduced after the macroeconomic and political stability.
