Event Detail

38th Annual Monetary and Trade Conference: Monetary Policy Interventions in the Covid-era: Implications and Consequences

In the first half of the year, the pandemic delivered the most severe blow to the US economy since the Great Depression. The collapse of GDP at a 32% annual rate in the second quarter, and the loss of more than 22 million jobs in March and April, were mitigated by a fiscal stimulus and monetary expansion. Following these emergency policy measures, the US economy increased at an annual rate of 33.1% in the third quarter. This conference will serve as a forum to discuss implications and consequences of the Federal Reserve monetary intervention. Special attention will be placed on the potential of future inflation and expectations for further accommodating policies by the Federal Reserve. This Executive Briefing is part of our College of Central Bankers event series.
