Event
In the Shoes of a Fed Policy Maker
August 19, 2009

A three-day seminar for high school economics and social studies teachers. The first two days, Federal Reserve economists and Wall Street professionals give participants briefings about the current economic situation and key issues for monetary policy. Educators have a chance to engage in interactive exercises and play the roles of Federal Reserve governors and bank presidents in a mock Federal Open Market Committe meeting, recommending a course for U.S. monetary policy. Seminar materials are provided.

Participants receive a letter certifying their attendance at the seminar that some school districts apply towards fulfilling mandated staff development requirements.

Audience
Teachers from the Second Federal Reserve District: New York State; the 12 northern counties of New Jersey; Fairfield County, Connecticut; Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
