Nominal GNP: an anchor for monetary policy?

Author

Listed:
  • George A. Kahn

Abstract

Nominal GNP has some theoretical appeal as a guide for monetary policy. Its principal strength is that it would prevent policy from drifting away from the long-run goal of price stability. However, whether policymakers can translate this theoretical appeal into an actual policy that improves economic performance is an open question.
