Research by Jorda, Taylor featured at Jackson Hole conference of central bankers

Like Riders on a Storm, central banks must navigate global trends in setting interest rates. Meeting the inflation and full employment mandates require monitoring international factors as much as domestic conditions. This was the main conclusion of the study by UCD Economics Professors Oscar Jorda and Alan Taylor at the recent Jackson Hole Economic Symposium sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

The Jackson Hole conference is a key forum for discourse on monetary policy, attended by central bank officials from around the world.

National news outlets such as Bloomberg, Reuters, and the Wall Street Journal covered Jorda and Taylor's participation.
