chair the fed: a monetary policy game


Go to  Use the Learn More button and review the tight (contractionary) and  easy (expansionary) tools of the Fed as well as the use of each. Briefly  examine the Economic Dictionary and the Policy in Depth features.

Now  play the game! You are the Fed Chairperson! You begin with 16 quarters,  4 years, and then your job is up for review. You begin with rates at  4.5, inflation at 2.14% and unemployment at 4.75%.

Make  decisions on interest rates for the 16 quarters. Summarize the changes  you chose and explain your results. Do you still have a job? Why or why  not?
