Topic Monetary Policy

Recessions cause substantial economic pain through elevated unemployment and financial distress for individuals, families, and businesses. Monetary policy is a primary tool that U.S. policymakers use to support the macroeconomy and reduce the pain of economic downturns. Equitable Growth works to improve our understanding of how monetary policy affects the business cycle, unemployment, and inequality to deliver robust, broad-based economic growth.
