This piper provides an overview of U.S. macroeconomic policy and

performance in the 1980s by first outlining the behavior of key economic

variables and then discussing the policies that have affected these

variables. After gaining some insight into the interaction between these

policies and macroeconomic performance, it then goes on to examine where

macro policy and the U.S. economy may be heading in the next several

years.
