That means the central bank will use monetary policy, by setting lower interest rates that stimulate growth and wages and thereby reducing consumption inequality, while tolerating inflation moving above. The theory of monetary policy has often focused on the links between the policy-controlled interest rate and the paths of the price level and real output in theoretical frameworks, in which money plays no essential role, if any, in the transmission of the effects of policy and, consequently, in its conduct.

The time-inconsistency problem with monetary policy tells us that, if policymakers use discretionary policy, there is a higher probability that the _____ will be higher, compared to policy. Yet nowadays monetary aggregates play little role in monetary policy deliberations at most central banks.

Monetary targeting involves three elements: 1) the reliance on information conveyed by a monetary aggregate to conduct monetary policy, 2) the announcement of medium-term targets for monetary aggregates, and 3) some accountability mechanism to preclude large an systematic deviations from the monetary targets.

Monetary economics is the branch of economics that studies the different competing theories of money: it provides a framework for analyzing money and considers its functions (such as medium of exchange, store of value and unit of account), and it considers how money, for example fiat currency, can gain acceptance purely because of its convenience as a public good.
