Question

Interest rate stability is a common goal of central banks. When has the Federal Reserve been relatively successful at keeping interest rates stable? Compare quarterly changes since 1965 of the federal funds rate (FRED code: FEDFUNDS) with the level of inflation based on the percentage change from year-ago levels of the consumer price index (FRED code: CPIAUCSL). Are stable interest rates associated with high or low inflation? Why?
