Employment targeting

Abstract

Inflation is often given the central role in discussions of monetary policy. Is this emphasis warranted? We investigate this in a DSGE model and find: (1) One can implement the optimal interest rate policy using only employment as an instrument, (2) using inflation as an instrument would lead to lower utility.
