The Federal Reserve Bank of New York works to promote sound and well-functioning financial systems and markets through its provision of industry and payment services, advancement of infrastructure reform in key markets and training and educational support to international institutions.
The Outreach & Education function engages, empowers and educates the public in the Second District. Our outreach mission furthers the Bank’s commitment to the region by listening to the communities we serve and developing programs, analysis and sponsored conferences and clinics to help meet their needs. Our education mission aims to advance public knowledge about the Federal Reserve System and its role in the economy.
The conference will begin by examining the historical transformations of the “engine of growth” industries in the New York metropolitan area, as well as more recent changes in the nature and location of economic activities in this area. It will then address the impact of such changes on a variety of socioeconomic outcomes, both for the general population and for recent immigrants in particular.
