Born in Yonkers, New York, he graduated from Shady Side Academy and earned his A. In research published in 1979 and 1980 he developed a model of price and wage setting—called the staggered contract model—which served as an underpinning of a new class of empirical models with rational expectations and sticky prices—sometimes called new Keynesian models. In 2012 he was included in the 50 Most Influential list of Bloomberg Markets Magazine. In 1977, Taylor and Edmund Phelps, simultaneously with Stanley Fischer, showed that monetary policy is useful for stabilizing the economy if prices or wages are sticky, even when all workers and firms have rational expectations. Taylor’s research on monetary policy rules traces back to his undergraduate studies at Princeton. A key stipulation of the Taylor rule, sometimes called the Taylor principle, is that the nominal interest rate should increase by more than one percentage point for each one-percent rise in inflation. Some empirical estimates indicate that many central banks today act approximately as the Taylor rule prescribes, but violated the Taylor principle during the inflationary spiral of the 1970s.
Taylor’s recent research has been on the financial crisis that began in 2007 and the world economic recession. He finds that the crisis was primarily caused by flawed macroeconomic policies from the U. Taylor’s research has also examined the impact of fiscal policy in the recent recession. In a June 2011 interview on Bloomberg Television, Taylor stressed the importance of long term fiscal reform that sets the U.
