Abstract This paper suggests a formal interpretation of the ECB’s two-pillar framework for monetary policy. I decompose inflation in the euro area into high- and low-frequency (or short-run and medium/long-run) components, which are correlated with monetary growth and the output gap, respectively. I propose and estimate a “two-pillar ” Phillips curve that assumes that money causes prices. While the model fits the data well and the causality assumption seems compatible with the 1980-1990 data, there appears to be reverse causality from prices to money in the 1991-2001 period, which would invalidate my proposed model.
