The Bank of Japan's recent regime change has drawn renewed attention to its monetary policy experimentation. First, the BOJ committed to overshooting its 2 percent inflation target. Second, it will...
Lyndon Johnson didn't invent student loans, but he probably was the most influential student borrower ever. When he graduated from Southwest Texas State Teachers College in 1930, he had $275 in debt ($3,900 in today's dollars). LBJ never forgot that debt. As a member of Congress, he pushed for a federal student loan program; as president, he succeeded.
The job market is much better than it was during the worst of Great Recession. The acute pain is past, but chronic problems remain. About 7 million American men between the ages of 25 and 54 - mostly too old to be in school and too young to retire - are neither working nor looking for work; another 2 million are looking for work but haven't found it.
The Bank of Japan faces one of the biggest challenges in central banking today: An economy with a shrinking population, persistently slow economic growth, huge government debt and deflationary pres...

Amid the ever-gloomier outlook for long-term economic growth of the world economy, a team of top economists at the International Monetary Fund are offering a ray of hope: Even though interest rates around the world are bumping along the floor and government debt loads are heavy, they say that there is still room for fiscal, monetary and structural policies to lift global growth provided they are "comprehensive, consistent and coordinated."
Only half of all Americans tell public opinion pollsters that they expect today's young people to have a better life than their parents, a remarkably pessimistic view given the economic and technological progress that the U.S. has enjoyed over the past several generations. Will those pessimists be proven correct?
Studies in this week's Hutchins Roundup find that the poor labor market outcomes of the long-term unemployed are a direct result of long unemployment spells rather than of poor employment prospects from the outset, children from households winning a state lottery are only modestly more likely to go to college, and more.
David Wessel, senior fellow and director of the Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy, looks at Hillary Clinton's and Donald Trump's different approaches to policy issues including taxes, family leave, and trade.
Narayana Kocherlakota of the University of Rochester, a former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, recently challenged what he described as the unhealthy fixation of Fed policymakers-and the economic profession-on relying on rules for setting interest rates, such as the high profile Taylor Rule devised by Stanford economist John Taylor.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
