To study decision making. An examination of how the policy preferences of individual members of the Federal Open Market Committee are translated into monetary policy many countries, monetary policy decisions are made by committees.

In the United States, these decisions are made by the Federal Reserve's Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), which consists of the seven members of the. The political process can select for monetary policy makers who will accommodate fiscal needs, even without overt coordination between fiscal and monetary agents.

In other words, fiscally accommodative central bankers are adaptively successful in the political environment of fiscal–monetary decision making.
