  • For an excellent discussion of current economic policy, see Econominc Report of the President, January, 2001. We will focus particularly on Chapter 2, "Macroeconomic Policy and Performance." Click here
  • Another good source is The Dismal Scientist. It has good discussions of current policy issues, particularly issues faced by the Fed, and it also has a good selection of charts. Click here
  • For a good explanation of just how monetary policy is conducted, go to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. You will find a brief description of monetary policy, with additional links to as much detail as you could possibly want. Click here. This site also has an excellent set of charts for GDP, inflation, M2, stock prices, and other economic indicators. Click here
