Fast Facts You Need To Know


Kocherlakota is the Lionel W. McKenzie Professor of Economics at the University of Rochester since January 1, 2016.


In January 2011, Kocherlakota contested the idea that the Federal Reserve caused the U.S. housing bubble in the 2000s. He noted that “land prices started to rise in 1996 and that prices grew 11% per year between 1996 and 2001, when the Fed’s target rate was between 4.75% and 6.5% …[,] ‘hardly … loose monetary policy.'” In August 2011, he was one of the three governors who voted against the statement promising to keep the short-term interest rate near zero for two more years.


He is one of the founders of “New Dynamic Public Finance”, which is an approach to optimal tax design “given only minimal restrictions on the set of possible tax instruments, and on the nature of shocks affecting people in the economy”. It establishes a “formal connection between the problem of dynamic optimal taxation and dynamic principal-agent contracting theory,..[which] means that the properties of solutions to principal-agent problems can be used to determine the properties of optimal tax systems”. His contributions include articles on optimal taxation and optimal unemployment insurance. He published a graduate textbook on the subject in 2010 called The New Dynamic Public Finance by Princeton University Press.


On October 8, 2009, Kocherlakota assumed the presidency of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis following the retirement of Gary H. Stern. Kocherlakota had been a consultant at the Minneapolis Fed since 1999.

After being appointed to the Minneapolis Fed in 2009, he underwent a “dramatic and unexpected intellectual transformation” from monetary hawk to dove, signaled in a September 2012 speech delivered at Gogebic Community College in Ironwood, Michigan, in which he advocated that the Fed “keep the fed funds rate extraordinarily low until the unemployment rate fall[s] below 5.5 percent” to everyone’s surprise. He said that he realized that labor-market problems like unemployment were, in fact, related to demand. He cast the only dissenting vote at the October 2014 Fed meeting, during which the Committee voted to conclude the QE asset purchase program, because of his view that inflation rates are still too low and that an interest-rate hike in 2015 would be a “mistake”, especially as inflation is unlikely to reach the targeted 2% until 2018.


In 2008, he was among 270 economists who signed a petition protesting the Obama administration’s economic stimulus plan that eventually passed and signed into law in February 2009. Paid for by the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank, the petition was published in several major national newspapers. According to Kocherlakota, he signed the petition not necessarily because he was opposed to the stimulus, but because he thought it was important to point out that the beneficial effects of an economic stimulus were not “a settled question within the academe.”


Kocherlakota’s first faculty position was at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He subsequently was a professor of economics at the University of Iowa, Stanford University, and the University of Minnesota. He served as the chair of the University of Minnesota’s economic department from 2006 until 2008, As chair of the University of Minnesota’s Economics Department, Kocherlakota decisively “recruited multiple economists to the school at once” (nine new hires within a two-year span), which improved its national rank in the U.S. News & World Report from 15th to 10th place among graduate programs in economics. Kocherlakota’s research in monetary economics, asset pricing, and public finance has appeared in Econometrica, Journal of Political Economy, Journal of Economic Theory, Journal of Monetary Economics, and Journal of Money, Credit and Banking.


He entered Princeton University at age 15 and graduated with an A.B. in Mathematics in 1983 after completing a senior thesis titled “Optimal income taxation” under the supervision of Robert M. Anderson. He earned a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago in 1987.
