    I enjoyed this discussion. His bias and approach is consistent with academia. While I agree reflecting on policy changes is a good concept but analysis paralysis is the downside risk. I started my career in small business where the rubber meets the road and we responded in real time to real things, focusing on how to preserve our viability and not thinking about the 5 year 5year..

    The problem with the Taylor Rule is it depends on input variables that are not measured well and in some instances outright massaged.

    I found Taylor thoughtful & measured in his comments rather than low energy. I guess an "academic" objected to Fred's 1st comment? I also thought it great to a expert question his own mental model.

    Let's talk about collusion between the Fed & White House, banks, media, regulators? Interview shows just how deeply we are entrenched in Keynesian post Glass-Steagall rigged world. How about an audit?

    Pippa, hopefully this will be the 1st interview of the new Fed Chair in 2017! You did not press him on ‘who’ is going buy the Fed’s assets? China?!? His energy level was pretty flat, good job w/yours.

    Dr. Taylor should be the next Fed Chairman...not only is he seasoned...but he understands the difference between a good idea on paper and getting it implemented...Pippa is simply priceless.

    Excellent interview. I loved the part around 15:00 where Prof. Taylor recognized his own potential bias re extreme scenarios. Many academics don't do this. Brilliant interview! Thanks Pippa :)
