Monetary Policy Rules and Macroeconomic Stability: Evidence and some Theory

Richard Clarida (), Jordi Galí () and Mark Gertler ()

Working Papers from C.V. Starr Center for Applied Economics, New York University

Abstract: We estimate a forward-looking monetary policy reaction function for the postwar U.S. economy, pre- and post-October 1979. Our results point to substantial differences in the estimated rule across periods. In particular, interest rate policy in the Volcker-Greenspan period appears to have been much mors sensitive to changes in expected inflation than in the pre-Volcker period.
