Would You Take Credit for the Mad Federal Reserve Policy Since 1987?

I didn't think so.

But there is an economist that claims the roller coaster economy that has led to a boom-bust economy, a crash of the real estate market and a global financial crisis is the Fed just following what he has recommended.

Today, at his blog, Harvard economist Greg Mankiw displays a chart that shows that since 1987 (except for the last two years) the Fed has been pretty much following his prescription.

  1. He's so devoid of principles he doesn't even adhere to the "don't take credit for bad news" principle!
