The Federal Reserve in the 21st Century

Monday and Tuesday, March 19 and 20, 2012

The Fed in the 21st Century gives college professors a chance to hear presentations from top economists and senior staff of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and ask them questions.

The first day will focus on new issues in monetary policy; the second day will be devoted to financial stability policy. The second day will also feature a webcast of Chairman Bernanke speaking live to a class at George Washington University on "Why do we have a central bank."

This event is limited to active college professors who teach economics, finance or business at two- or four-year colleges and universities. Unfortunately, due to space limitations we cannot grant exceptions.
(Closed to the press)
