Abstract [en]

Using both an OLS as well as VAR model approach, this study investigates the role of interest, exchange and bank lending rates in aggregate firm investment in Sweden, based on quarterly data from 2008 to 2018. While an initially strong and positive relationship between policy-controlled interest rates and bank lending rates reports evidence for efficient monetary policy transmission, aggregate firm investment rates seem to respond to changes in interest and previous periods’ investment rates only, suggesting exchange rates to be insignificant for aggregate firm investment spending decisions.
