Myth 3: Monetary policy becomes ineffective when short-term interest rates fall close to zero.
Myth 4: The greater the indebtedness incurred during growth years, the larger the subsequent need for debt reduction and the greater the downturn.
Myth 5: When money policy breaks down there is a plausible case for a fiscal response.
Myth 6: The rising prices of food and other commodities are evidence of expansionary policy and inflationary pressure.
