Last quote by Stanley Fischer

Adherence to a simple policy rule is not the most appropriate means of achieving macroeconomic goals. Emphasis on a single rule as the basis for monetary policy implies that the truth has been found, despite the record over time of major shifts in monetary policy. We should not make our monetary policy decisions based on that assumption.feedback
