This Web page, part of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco Web site, discusses the effect of the Taylor's rule formula on Federal Reserve monetary policy. Taylor's rule is a formula developed by Stanford economist John Taylor. It was designed to provide "recommendations" for how a central bank like the Federal Reserve should set short-term interest rates as economic conditions change.
