  Following its meeting in January , the FOMC issued a statement regarding its longer-run goals and monetary policy strategy. The FOMC noted in its statement that the Committee judges that inflation at the rate of 2 percent (as measured by the annual change in the price index for personal consumption expenditures, or PCE) is most consistent.   The basic idea behind nominal income targeting is that the central bank would establish a target growth rate for nominal income in the economy (as measured by, for example, nominal GDP). When nominal income is below its target, the central bank would engage in expansionary monetary policy by increasing the money supply.

Monetary policy will be geared to evolving conditions in the economy, and the public does need to understand that as those views evolve, the Committee's views on policy will likely evolve with them. in the short run, for the Committee to. A monetary policy strategy in which a central bank (in the U.S., the Federal Reserve) estimates and makes public a projected, or “target,” inflation rate and then attempts to steer actual inflation toward the target through the use of interest rate changes and other monetary .

Price stability is often a good normative goal, and monetary policy ought to target the natural or neutral rate. endogeneity of the monetary policy regime. We find that both having and hitting quantitative targets for monetary policy is systematically and robustly associated with lower inflation. The exact form of the monetary target matters somewhat, but is less important than having some quantitative target.

Inflation targeting increases accountability, which helps ameliorate the time-inconsistency trap (in which the central bank tries to expand output and employment in the short run by pursuing overly expansionary monetary policy).

Table 3 presents the results of the Granger-causality tests by using OLS with the optimal lag length chosen in Table 2 and by using the EGARCH with the same lag length as the OLS, excluding the spillover effects to Asia from US monetary policy.

Because the target variable should be reliably related to future economic activity, each aggregate is used in estimating a small macromodel which consists of a nominal GNP growth equation and an inflation specification.
