This chapter examines the program launched by former U.S. President Gerald Ford to reduce inflation. It discusses Ford's consolidation of his administration's economic efforts under a new Economic Policy Board (EPB). It suggests that the establishment of the EPB and the rejection of price and wage controls demonstrated the importance of economic policy for Ford and his involvement in it. In addition to the EPB, Ford also hosted economic summit conferences and open discussions among his economic advisers.

Keywords:   Gerald Ford, inflation, EPB, price control, wage control, economic policy, economic summits, open discussions, presidents, U.S
