Formatted abstract This thesis proposes a net wealth index policy rule with a goal of averting asset market failures. Fiscal policy capital gains taxes are proposed as the net wealth index tool, operating separate to current Federal Reserve policy. In addition, the policy rule complements the Federal Reserve's inflation oriented policy by maintaining stable asset market conditions. This allows the Federal Reserve to maintain its inflationary goals, while collaborating with fiscal policy to maintain asset markets within a specific net wealth index range. Benefits of the net wealth index policy rule are set in context of a new consensus stylized Federal Reserve. Minsky's (1992) 'Financial Instability Hypothesis' is modeled to show the effects of the net wealth index and of capital gains taxes on asset markets.
