    7. Stanford Economist Dr. John B. Taylor on the Economic Situation and Rules-Based Policy

    7. Stanford Economist Dr. John B. Taylor on the Economic Situation and Rules-Based Policy

    I had the pleasure of having an in-depth conversation with Stanford economist Dr. John B. Taylor who pioneered the Taylor rule in monetary policy. We discuss our times at the White House, the importance of evaluating tradeoffs with policy decisions, the benefits of pro-growth economic policies, and the need for a rules-based approach to fiscal and monetary policies. It was truly an honor to interview one of the greatest living economists who has transformed the economics profession and the world in many ways to better let people prosper.  Dr. Taylor’s bio is at the link below which includes many achievements, but he is also a great person and someone who I have admired for a long time. Watch the interview to learn more.
