Journal of Monetary Economics, 2019, vol. 108, issue C, 39-44
Lamla and Vinogradov study the causal effect of central bank announcements on consumers' expectations and perceptions by conducting a new series of surveys. I discuss the key empirical results of the paper, supplement their results with evidence of news coverage patternssurrounding Federal Open Market Committee meetings, and provide suggestions for future research using the authors' novel dataset.
