Changing Imperatives for U.S. Monetary Policy Normalization

February 17, 2016

He also discussed the need for monetary policy to be more clearly data dependent and suggested that the FOMC may wish to consider changes to the way it approaches the policy rate projections in the Summary of Economic Projections.
