Remember: The job of your five (5) member team, a Board of Governors, is to set monetary policy by adjusting the Fed Funds Rate and respond to the implications your policy has on Unemployment and Inflation. Your targets are: 5.00% Unemployment (The Natural Rate of Unemployment) and 2.00% Inflation. Each decision of the team must be recorded and explained with majority rule guiding your Board’s decision. You must also select a chairman or chairwoman of the Board.
