The U.S. Economic Outlook and Monetary Policy: The European Economics and Financial Centre, Distinguished Speakers Seminar, London, U.K. - July 1, 2016


Abstract: I thank the European Economics and Financial Centre for the invitation to speak to this distinguished audience, in this venerable venue, at this historically significant time. I will focus my remarks today on the other side of the pond ? in particular, the U.S. economy and monetary policy. But as you know, we live in a global world, and so we are monitoring very closely what is happening on this side of the pond and assessing the implications for the economic outlook and monetary policy on my side of the pond. Before I begin, I should note that the views I'll present today are my own and not necessarily those of the Federal Reserve System or my colleagues on the Federal Open Market Committee.

Keywords: Economic growth; Brexit; inflation; labor markets; monetary policy;
