Globalization & Monetary Policy Institute
The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas established the Globalization and Monetary Policy Institute in 2007 for the purpose of better understanding how the process of deepening economic integration between the countries of the world, or globalization, alters the environment in which U.S. monetary policy decisions are made. The Institute’s mission is to produce research that sheds light on important policy questions and meets the highest standards of the peer-reviewed literature.
2012 Annual Report
The five-year anniversary of the Globalization and Monetary Policy Institute is a good point at which to take stock of what we have learned and where we need to focus our future research. The lead article in this year's annual report outlines some emerging themes in the institute's research program: international pricing, inflation dynamics, business-cycle synchronization and the optimal conduct of monetary policy in a more integrated global economy.
