Excerpt

September 12, 2022, Interview: "There’s little doubt among economists that monetary policy—adjusting financial conditions through interest rate changes and other actions—should be a key tool for reducing inflation from its current high level. But the question of how those in charge of government fiscal policy should use their tax and spending tools when inflation is high is a lot trickier, says Harvard economist Karen Dynan."
