Abstract: Recent progress in the practical application of research on monetary policy rules in the United States during the 1990s is examined. The paper focuses on how simple policy rules that describe how the central bank's interest rate responds to the economy have provided a useful framework for actual decision making. It is argued that the process by which economic research is put into practice--called transitional economies--is fascinating and worthy of careful study in general. Several recent examples from research on monetary policy rules are offered to show why. Copyright 1998 by Blackwell Publishers Ltd and The Victoria University of Manchester
