The game starts you off with the fed funds rate set at 4.50%, unemployment at 4.75% and inflation at 2.14%. I played a few times and got hit with events like energy price spikes and stimulus programs. I lost the first two tries but on the third go-round I decided to keep the fed funds rate around 3% ahead of inflation while also keeping an eye on th unemployment rate. I am happy to say that I got to keep my job at the end of the game.
