Remarks at the 22nd Annual Regional and Community Banker’s Conference at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston

Abstract: Federal Reserve Bank of Boston President & CEO Susan M. Collins participated in the Bank’s 22nd Annual Regional & Community Bankers Conference. In her remarks, President Collins says inflation is still taking a toll across New England, but the Fed sees evidence that inflation is moderating. The impacts of the pandemic remain unusual, and that means a high degree of uncertainty will be an inescapable part of the near-term policymaking environment, necessitating patience. She also says the region’s banking industry plays an essential role, serving communities and providing households and businesses with the funding they need for economic wellbeing.

Keywords: inflation; supply; demand; maximum employment; price stability; monetary policy; federal funds rate; COVID-19; uncertainty;
