Meltzer: Fed, Treasury too close for comfort
The Federal Reserve’s cozy relationship with the U.S. Treasury signals a loss of independence by the central bank, says Allan Meltzer, The Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy.

Meltzer: Yield cap not the answer for European woes

Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy. Rather, Meltzer says there needs to be a permanent, long-term solution.

Goodfriend: Fed rate forecasts without inflation targets would be a huge mistake
It would be a huge mistake for the Federal Reserve to publish rate forecasts without first establishing an inflation target, says Marvin Goodfriend, professor of economics; chairman, The Gailliot Center for Public Policy. Goodfriend says such a move, which was suggested at a San Francisco Fed conference, would create “massive confusion” because market participants would not know what rate the central bank’s policy was aiming for.
