    Thanks for sharing my video, Lars! Warts and all, I think it could’ve come out a lot worse.

  2. Ram, it is an really good video so I hope a lot of people will watch it.

    Hmmm. The robot voices kind of creep me out. I think I will stick to hearing Scott Sumner’s presentations. Good explanation of NGDP targeting in any case, though I don’t really believe in the liquidity trap personally.

    @Blake: Neither does Lars Svensson, and he’s pretty New Keynesian. At the very least, it’s strange to say monetary policy is ineffective when the central bank can print a bunch of currency and buy foreign exchange; I guarantee that would change peoples’ inflation expectations.
