A mandate for price stability

  • Robert L. Hetzel
Registered author(s):

    The Neal Resolution, now in Congress, would make price stability the dominant goal of monetary policy. The first of these two articles holds that policymakers’ discretion over the price level increases political conflict. Further, it argues that removing this discretion would restore the dollar to the role envisioned by the Framers of the Constitution. The second article proposes an instrument for measuring inflation expected by the market and argues that such a measure would encourage monetary policy-makers to maintain price stability.
