NEW YORK—On Friday, May 13, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will host a virtual Symposium bringing together academics and policymakers for a thought-provoking discussion on climate change and its implications for the macroeconomy and the Fed's dual mandate. The Symposium is organized by the New York Fed's Applied Macroeconomics and Econometrics Center (AMEC) , building on the breadth of topics related to monetary policy that AMEC aims to explore.
The Symposium will cover the following topics: the implications of climate change for monetary policy; labor and capital reallocation due to climate change and associated policies; climate change, trade, and global production; and climate uncertainty, financial markets, and the natural rate of interest. The Symposium contributes to AMEC’s goal of building on the New York Fed's Research Group's work in the fields of macroeconomics and applied econometrics, and providing intellectual leadership in the central banking community to inform and support the monetary policy evaluation process.
The event is open to the public, including academics, researchers, and policymakers. Further details on the event, including the full agenda and registration, are available on the Symposium's event page.
The event is also open to members of the press. All remarks are on the record, and the event will be livestreamed with a recording made available afterwards. Press who wish to attend should contact Mariah Measey at the New York Fed, Mariah.Measey@ny.frb.org.
