Building the rural economy with high-growth entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs create economic growth in their communities by forming new firms.

Controlling security risk and fraud in payment systems

In late 2013, a security breach at a major retailer exposed information on 40 million payment cards. The number of data breaches has increased in recent years, and the targeted use of exposed data suggests a decentralized "virtual fraud factory" driving payment fraud. The direct costs of third-party fraud are high for consumers, banks, and merchants, but the indirect costs could be even higher if these incidences undermine the public's confidence in non-cash payments. Sullivan examines trends in payment fraud, prevention, and data protection to evaluate recent security performance. He ...

Why have the dynamics of labor productivity changed?

The strength of the nascent economic recovery--and of the labor market--will depend importantly on labor productivity. By itself, faster productivity growth contributes to faster output growth. At the same time, stronger productivity gains allow firms to increase output without adding workers. Some analysts believe that faster productivity growth contributed to the ?jobless recoveries? after the 1990-91 and 2001 recessions. ; In recent years, the U.S. economy has undergone a change in the behavior of productivity over the business cycle. Until the mid-1980s, productivity growth rose and fell ...

The importance of community colleges to the Tenth District economy

The recent recession and now the recovery have caused enrollment at many community colleges to soar as unemployed workers retrain for new occupations and students who might otherwise attend a four-year college choose to save money. In the Tenth District, the importance of community colleges is likely to rise even further as the economy continues to evolve and industries demand workers with new skills. ; Labor market projections over the next decade suggest that new jobs in the district will be filled more by workers with an associate?s degree or some college than by those with any other type ...

Structural changes in the financial markets: economic and policy significance

In a speech delivered this spring to the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and to the CS First Boston Corporation Global Banking Conference in New York City, Henry Kaufman predicted that the latest swings in bond and stock prices are likely to be merely a prologue to much greater volatility in the years ahead. This potential for financial trauma is a by-product of radical changes in the structure of financial institutions and markets that over time are leaving the system without an adequate institutional buffer and, therefore, more susceptible to sharp oscillations ...
