Attendees will hear from Fed economists, policy makers and other experts about current economic conditions, the prolonged labor market weakness and prospects for recovery, and the Richmond Fed’s views on housing finance policy, and price stability and monetary policy.
There is no cost to attend this event. Registration is required.
Lunch will be provided. Registration for the onsite event is limited to 10 undergraduate students and one faculty member from each university. Professors are responsible for registering all participants in advance.
