maximum employment, stable prices and moderate long-term interest rates.

The CB troika
Maximum stable  moderate
Each has one noun attached to it in the " law " governing the FED

However ...

Fed boards see to it
These modifiers are  all in the wrong places

But we can re scramble the three  around and get closer

Maximum employment ?

means employment rates consistent with moderate wage rate change

Stable prices ?

means  moderate and stable product price inflation

Moderate long term interest rates ?

That's a stumper

Long rate goals are not moderate steady or maximum

They're instrumental
