Industry effect, Monetary policy, Euro


The article sheds some light on the question of whether monetary policy has stronger effects on economic activity in recessions than in expansions. It analyzed which industries are relatively more affected in downturns. The estimation was done by examining eleven manufacturing industries in seven countries of the euro area. The article is related to the works of Garcia and Schaller,1995; Kakes, 1998; Dolado and Maria-Dolores, 1999; and Peersman and Smets, 2001.
