FedListens: New England Perspectives on Fed Policymaking
This year, the Federal Reserve is asking a wide range of stakeholders to provide feedback on our approach to policymaking. We’re asking for perspectives on our performance in attaining the goals Congress has assigned us – and the impact we have on the interest rates, job markets, and prices that Americans experience every day.
In this spirit, on Monday, May 13, the Boston Federal Reserve Bank will host a half-day conference featuring three panels that represent a cross-section of views. Panelists will offer perspectives from organizations that focus on the underserved, views from an array of demographic groups, and impressions from small business and labor. And we will engage the audience to gather feedback on the Fed’s policymaking approach and its impact on residents of New England.
The event will be an opportunity to engage with Fed leaders, including Fed Vice Chairman Richard Clarida and Boston Fed president Eric Rosengren, among other officials. You don’t need to be an economic policy expert to make a valuable contribution to the discussion. Indeed, we are seeking real-world views on the impact of Fed policies. Following each panel discussion, audience-wide comments and discussion will be welcomed. We hope you will join us.
This event will be open to media and streamed on the web.
