Taylor's rule and the Fed, 1970-1997

This paper estimates a simple model of the Federal Reserve's "reaction function" - that is, the relationship between economic developments and the fed's response to them. We focus on how this estimated reaction function has changed over time. Such changes are not surprising given compositional changes in the Federal Open Market Committee, and we consider three subsamples delineated by the terms of recent fed Chairmen. We find that the estimated reaction functions for each period vary in ways that seem broadly consistent with the success or failure during the period at controlling ...

Regional economic conditions and the FOMC votes of district presidents

It is often argued that the institutional structure of the Federal Reserve System influences the formulation and attainment of national monetary policy goals. District Bank presidents do play a major role in the formulation of monetary policy.

Results here show that the Blue Chip consensus forecasts are a good proxy for the FOMC views. For example, they match the policymakers? views as closely as do the Board staff ...

A perspective on the U.S. Economy and monetary policy (with reference to the music of Richard Wagner and Gangsta Rap)

Remarks before New Mexico State University's Spring 2011 Domenici Institute Forum, Las Cruces, New Mexico, May 4, 2011 ; I will keep my comments as brief as possible this afternoon so as to leave ample time for Q&A. I want to first provide the prcis of the analysis of the nation?s economy that I presented to the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) last week on behalf of the 27 million citizens of the 11th District of the Federal Reserve System, including the citizens of Las Cruces and southern New Mexico. Second, I will discuss inflation as we see it at the Dallas Fed. But before getting ...

What are the odds? option-based forecasts of FOMC target changes

This article uses probability forecasts derived from options to assess evolving market uncertainty about Federal Reserve monetary policy actions in a variety of recent events and episodes. Options on federal funds futures contracts reveal a complete probability density function over possible Federal Reserve target rates, thus augmenting the expectations provided by federal funds futures contracts. Option-based forecasts are most useful when more than two federal funds target outcomes are plausible at an upcoming policy meeting.
