Speech Topics

The Federal Reserve has been challenged to navigate the post-pandemic economy.  While at the Federal Reserve, Eric highlighted that public health-induced supply shocks were likely to be very different than the demand shocks encountered in most recessions.  The different nature of this shock, may impact the outlook very differently compare to the past, requiring a nimble monetary policy.  Relying on his deep experience with monetary policy and financial markets, Eric provides a clear guide to likely outcomes and challenges facing the US economy.

In 2020, pandemic policies at the Federal Reserve have altered long-held views of likely central bank actions.  In 2020 the Federal Reserve introduced a new policy framework that promises a more “patient” monetary policy.  In addition, the widespread use of emergency facilities, asset-purchase programs, and altered supervisory policies will change how the Federal Reserve reacts to crises.  With a clear understanding of financial institutions and financial markets, Eric describes how these changes will impact financial choices and economic policy in the future.
