US Monetary Policy Forum
Sponsored by the Initiative on Global Markets, this annual conference brings together policymakers, leading scholars, and market economists to discuss US monetary policy. In advance of each event, members of the forum’s panel of scholars produce a report on a different critical issue confronting the Federal Open Market Committee. The conference then focuses on that topic. Attendance at the US Monetary Policy Forum is by invitation only.
The 2020 US Monetary Policy Forum was held in New York on February 21, 2020. Click here for the full conference program.
