His claim to fame is the Taylor Rule. All academics need a widely talked abot theory to impress other academics, and their students of coure.

The rule states that for evry 1% increase in inflation, the nominal (fed funds) interest rate must also rise by 1%.

And how did the $DXY react to the news, suprise suprise, it ticked up for a few hours helping it's uptrend along!
