Abstract: We investigate how the Federal Reserve (Fed) hit the zero lower bound (ZLB) interest rate while operating under a Taylor-type policy rule. We estimate a reaction function, and the results indicate that during the crisis Fed increased the weight on output without also increasing the weight on inflation which led them to hit the ZLB.0
