Contrary to Cecchetti (2003), they show that this holds true even if the central bank cannot distinguish between fundamental and non-fundamental components of a bubble, and if asset prices are volatile. In those cases, the weight will be lower but, usually, it will not be zero. Contrary to Goodhart, these authors do not argue that the Fed should rapidly move its interest rates: “A crucial element of our proposal is that interest rates would move gradually in response to deviations of asset prices from perceived fundamentals” (Cecchetti et al.

Therefore, by promoting price stability, the central bank “will do more for financial stability than reforming deposit insurance or reregulating” (Schwartz 1988: 55). The price stability policy should be implemented at a low level of inflation, because “the variability of changes in relative prices seems to rise as the overall rate of inflation rises” (Schwartz 1998: 34). By doing this, central banks will reduce the variability of the nominal rate of interest and make it easier for banks to access creditworthiness, which promote economic growth and financial stability.

They argue in favor of an intervention by central banks when The asset-price bubble is small enough, […] [that is to say, if] the probability that the bubble will burst of its own accord over the next year is assessed to be small; the bubble’s probability of bursting is quite interest sensitive; efficiency losses associated with the bubble rise strongly with the bubble’s size; or, the bubble’s demise is expected to occur gradually over an extended period, rather than in a sudden burst.
