The Fed’s New Monetary Policy Tools



The Federal Reserve (the Fed) and its monetary policy tools have a significant presence in economics standards, textbooks, and curricula. The Fed has changed the way it implements monetary policy, but many of the recent changes are not reflected in teaching resources. This special issue of Page One Economics is intended to provide information and teaching guidance for educators as they transition to teaching about the new tools of monetary policy.
