in a corridor system, the ioer would become the floor for the federal funds rate and the discount rate or the taf would set the ceiling. the figure below shows the difference between a corridor
this effectively created a floor on market interest rates, as banks would have no incentive to lend money at rates lower than they could receive on reserves held on deposit at the fed. prior to 2008, the fed controlled short-term interest rates by adjusting the supply of base money, a corridor system.

the federal reserve fed switched from using a corridor operating system to using a floor operating system in late 2008. by design, a floor system eliminates the opportunity cost to a bank of holding reserves, allowing a central bank to use its balance sheet as an independent tool of monetary policy. making the demand
feds pre-2008 corridor system. before 2008 the interest rate policy system is a so-called corridor system, where the discount rate served as the corridor ceiling and the zero lower bound zlb was the floor. in this system, the demand curve of the bank reserve market is downward sloping with respect to the interbank interest rate.

while a floor-type system is less familiar, it helps promote the efficient functioning of the financial system by allowing banks to earn the market rate of interest on all of their reserve balances. in a corridor-type system, the interest-on-reserves rate is lower than the market interest rate.
in terms of focus, none of the above papers compares the pre-crisis corridor system with the current floor system in a macroeconomic model with both deposit and lending central bank facilities. furthermore, the mechanism through which balance sheet policies have effects is fundamentally different.

a corridor serving an occupant load of 30 or less in an unsprinklered group b occupancy is not required to be enclosed with fire-resistance-rated construction. the purpose of corridor enclosures is to provide fire protection to occupants as they travel the confined path, perhaps unaware of a fire buildup in an adjacent floor area.

with macroeconomic fundamentals improving, central banks now face the dilemma as to whether to maintain this large balance sheet/floor system, or else to reduce their balance sheet size towards pre-crisis trends and operate traditional corridor systems.
in such a system, the target for the federal funds rate would typically be set within the corridor established by the discount rate at the ceiling and the interest rate on excess reserves at the floor. although the federal reserve has not formally adopted a channel system, establishing a floor
specifically, unlike a corridor system, the fed's floor system allows it to expand its balance sheet, whether through last resort lending or by means of open-market security purchases, to any desirable extent, without altering its monetary policy stance.
