July 2017  Posted a new paper Forward Guidance, Monetary Policy Uncertainty, and the Term Premium (with Trenton Herriford and A. Lee Smith).  We show that forward guidance about future monetary policy can materially affect term premia in bond markets, even without large-scale asset purchases.

June 2017  Completed a new paper, How Do FOMC Projections Affect Policy Uncertainty? (with Trenton Herriford).  We show that interest-rate uncertainty declined after the introduction of policy projections by FOMC participants.  Moreover, we show that changes in policymaker disagreement can help explain movements in interest-rate uncertainty around FOMC meetings. 

May 2017  My work Uncertainty Shocks in a Model of Effective Demand (with Susanto Basu) has been published in the May issue of Econometrica.
