As we approach December 2013 as the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Federal Reserve Act, businesses, entrepreneurs, bankers, policymakers, academics and economists from around Virginia are invited to join the VACC’s 6th Annual Economic Forum which is open to the public.
The topic to be highlighted is “Five Questions about the Federal Reserve Bank and Monetary Policy." Committed to foster a sustainable economic recovery and knowing that although monetary policy cannot cure the economy's ills, particularly in today's challenging circumstances, the Federal Reserve Bank seems to think it can provide meaningful help. People are eager to know more about the nation’s central bank, the Federal Reserve Bank, what it does, and why it does what it does, and how does it help foster economic sustainability. For those wishing to know more about the role of “the Fed”, Vice President and Senior Economist Ray Owens. Bio.
Mr. Owens will answer the following five questions:
- What are the Fed's objectives, and how is it trying to meet them?
- What's the relationship between the Fed's monetary policy and the fiscal decisions of the Administration and Congress?
- What are the goals of the monetary policy and some examples of monetary policy tools?
- What is the risk that the Fed's accommodative monetary policy will lead to inflation?
- How does the Fed's monetary policy affect businesses, investors, savers?
