The contributions and limitations of "monetary" analysis
AbstractDuring Voicker's presidency, the role of monetary aggregates as a guide to policy came under increasing public discussion.

He argues that monetary targeting imposes a beneficial discipline on Federal Reserve policies. He also notes, however, that instability in velocity over horizons relevant for policy and the possibility of credit market disturbances make attention to other sources of information imperative.
