Economic Commentary

Monetary Policy, Information, and Price Stability

Inflation rates over the last several years have eroded the purchasing power of the dollar and have impaired economic efficiency. The Federal Reserve could move more effectively toward its stated goal of price stability through an information program stating its goals, methods, and timetables for achieving zero inflation.

The views authors express in Economic Commentary are theirs and not necessarily those of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland or the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. The series editor is Tasia Hane. This paper and its data are subject to revision; please visit for updates.
