Abstract

This chapter gives a fascinating overview of a very dynamic field of empirical research to which Glenn Hubbard himself has contributed a lot in recent years. As it is too rich to comment on all of aspects, I will concentrate my comments on two points, the importance of financial market imperfections for macroeconomic modeling, and the role of financial innovation in the transmission of monetary policy.
