The Outlook for the Economy and Federal Reserve Policy


Abstract: I have the pleasure of serving on the council’s board so I have seen firsthand the important work the council is doing to increase economic and financial literacy in the country. As the council’s mission statement explains, equipping students with this knowledge can help them make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities. It is noteworthy that despite the burdens of the pandemic, the council has found creative ways to carry on its mission, including its support of teachers, the National Economics Challenge, and this speakers’ series. Today, before we open it up to questions, I’ll give you an update on the economy and on the Federal Reserve’s policy response.
