Registrants & Fees
The recent past has witnessed most notable shifts affecting the entire range of economic policies. They combine both the long anticipated step up from ultra-low interest rates to proposed but long dormant and now energized tax, regulatory, and potentially spending initiatives. Keeping up with developments can be a challenge in itself, so how are the macro-economy and individual decision makers adjusting?
To help us better interpret this full tide of changes delivered in an especially strong wave, we will welcome back for an annual return visit a senior business economist at the Chicago Fed who closely tracks regional activity in the Midwest. After hearing his presentation, you will ideally come away with useful insights on topics like:
- Trends in policy targets and their business impacts
- Interrelationship of fiscal and monetary moves
- Prospects for various economic sectors
- Relevant considerations for small and emerging businesses
Scott Brave, Policy Economist, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
