Rise and Fall of a Policy Rule Monetarism at the St. Louis Fed, 1968-1986 by R. W Hafer( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2001 in No Linguistic Content and English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
From the 1960s to the 1980s, the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis played an important and highly visible role in the development and advocacy of stabilization policy based on the targeting of monetary aggregates. Research conducted at the St. Louis Bank extended earlier monetarist analysis that had focused on the role of money in explaining economic activity in the long run. Their success in finding apparently robust, stable relationships in both long- and short-run data led monetarists to apply long-run propositions to short-run policy questions, effectively competing with alternative views of the time. When the short-run correlation between money and economic activity went astray in the early 1970s, however, the efficacy of the monetarist rule and appeals for targeting monetary aggregates to achieve economic stabilization quickly lost credibility. This article traces the evolution of monetary policy research at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis as it moved from the identification of long-run relationships between money and economic activity toward short-run policy analysis. The authors show how monetarists were lulled into advocating a short-run stabilization policy and argue that this experience counsels against overconfidence in our ability to identify infallible rules for conducting short-run stabilization policy in general....

Darryl Francis and the Making of Monetary Policy, 1966-1975 by R. W Hafer( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2003 in No Linguistic Content and English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Darryl Francis was president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis from 1966 to 1975. Throughout those years he was a leading critic of United States monetary policy. Francis argued in policy meetings and public venues that monetary policy should focus on maintaining a stable price level. In contrast, most policymakers at the time believed it possible to exploit a trade-off between unemployment and inflation. Francis attributed inflation directly to excessive growth of the money stock while other policymakers blamed labor and product market failures, fiscal policy, and commodity price shocks. Francis argued that inflation could not be controlled except by limiting the growth of monetary aggregates whereas other policymakers promoted price controls or other schemes. Francis favored maintaining a stable money stock growth rate at a time when monetary policy was widely interpreted as involving the manipulation of interest rates. Reviewing the debates between Francis and his Federal Reserve colleagues improves our understanding of the reasons behind the Fed's monetary policy actions at the time and illuminates how policy views evolved toward accepting price level stability as the paramount, long-term objective for monetary policy....

Relative price variability : Evidence from supply and demand events by Lawrence S Davidson( Book )
4 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide

Choosing between M1 and debt as an intermediate target for monetary policy by R. W Hafer( Article )
4 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
The article investigates the relationship between GNP and M1 and total domestic debt. Although numerous recent papers have shown M1 to be preferable to other monetary measures for this purpose, evidence has been advanced by others to suggest that the debt measure may work just as well as M1. This paper indicates that both M1 and debt are subject to some feedback from GNP.--SCAD summary
