U.S. Macroeconomic Stabilization Policy

 The Federal Reserve, which is the central bank of the United States, plays a major role in economic stabilization. It does so primarily through control over the supply of money and interest rates. At the same time, it must take into account not only the role of fiscal policy, which consists of changes in tax and spending rates by government, but also international trade and capital flows in the selection of any given policy. The material below is designed to provide an introduction to the role of the Federal Reserve system in macroeconomic stabilization.
