Was There a Great Moderation for Inflation Volatility?

Alan Detmeister and Edward Hulseman

No 2017-06-29, FEDS Notes from Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (U.S.)

Abstract: Most accounts of the "Great Moderation"--a decline in macroeconomic volatility in the decades prior to the Great Recession--focus on employment growth and GDP growth. In this note, we demonstrate that the decline in core inflation volatility at a monthly frequency is principally an artifact of data construction.
