Report October 2008
Recent experience has bolstered the view that asset prices must come under the central bank’s purview in order for the economy to retain some semblance of stability. However, in a new Public Policy Brief, Pedro Nicolaci da Costa argues that attitude changes among regulators will be even more important than shifts in mandate in ensuring that regulators like the Federal Reserve do their jobs properly. In a related Policy Note, Senior Scholar L. Randall Wray examines the Fed’s unsuccessful efforts to curtail the widening financial crisis in the United States, and outlines an alternative framework for monetary policy formation.
