The Federal Reserve in the 21st Century (Fed 21) symposium on monetary policy and financial stability recently brought together over 225 college professors from around the region and the world. The annual two-day event gives professors who teach economics, finance, or business the opportunity to hear presentations from top Federal Reserve Bank of New York economists and senior staff and ask them questions. Fed 21 is part of the Bank’s broader efforts to increase public understanding of the Federal Reserve System’s role in conducting monetary policy and ensuring financial stability.
The first day, Monday, March 19, was devoted to new issues in U.S. monetary policy. The second day, Tuesday, March 20, focused on financial stability policy. The second day also featured a webcast of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke speaking live to a class at George Washington University on the Federal Reserve and the financial crisis.
The presentations, which include mostly unedited videos of the lecture and slides from each presenter, are available for viewing on our website. Lectures that are accompanied by a question-and-answer session at the end of a presentation are indicated with an asterisk (*).
