The Federal Reserve is the single most important economic policy institution in the United States. Its recent unprecedented actions and interventions have raised serious concerns in many quarters about inflation, as well as the independence and effectiveness of the Fed. In The Road Ahead for the Fed, a group of expert contributors examine the recent actions of the Federal Reserve and discuss how the Fed arrived at this position, how it can best deal with the road ahead, and how it might reduce the likelihood of crisis-driven interventions in the future.
