Overview

Appointing Central Bankers: The Politics of Monetary Policy in the United States and the European Monetary Union by Thrainn Eggertsson, Kelly H. Chang

Focusing on how the President and the Senate influence monetary policy by appointing Federal Reserve Board members, this book answers three questions about the appointment process and its effects. First, do politicians influence monetary policy via Federal Reserve appointments? Second, who influences the process—only the President or the President and the Senate? Third, how is the structure of the Federal Reserve appointment process explained? The study extends the analysis of the Federal Reserve Board to the European Central bank.
