Goodfriend: Congress needs to clarify credit boundaries for Fed
Loans to banks that later failed put the Federal Reserve in the inappropriate position of deciding the fate of individual institutions, says Marvin Goodfriend, professor of economics; chairman, The Gailliot Center for Public Policy. Goodfriend says Congress needs to clarify the boundaries of independent Fed credit policy.

Bernanke is not looking in the right places for inflation, Meltzer says
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke sees little risk of inflation because he doesn’t look in the right places, says Allan Meltzer, The Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy. Meltzer says price increases occur at different rates; for example, right now labor costs are not rising, but the price of raw materials is.

Meltzer: Inflation indexes distorted
The Federal Reserve is wrong to focus on low measures of consumer-price inflation because such indexes are distorted, says Allan Meltzer, The Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy. Meltzer says a component of the index, owners’ equivalent rent, makes inflation look low but does not reflect price increases at the gas pump, grocery store or health clinic.

Greater transparency took years for Fed, says Meltzer

Direct spending offers one estimate of a convention’s economic impact
Estimates of direct spending from a regional convention produce a fairly good picture of how much money such events bring to a local economy, says Stephen Spear, professor of economics. However, some cities go beyond direct spending to calculate economic impact, which is much trickier to pin down but generally produces higher estimates.
