The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond has added a new section on its website to share its views on a range of policy issues that affect the national economy.
"Our Perspective" informs policymakers and the public on key economic issues being examined by the Richmond Fed, explaining the academic research and theoretical foundations that support the Bank's viewpoints. Each issue will be discussed in an essay that reflects the latest analysis by the Bank's research economists. There will also be links to related research available online, as well as speeches, testimony and commentary by Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker.
Initially, "Our Perspective" will focus on two issues:
In the coming months, topics will include housing finance policy, price stability and monetary policy, and labor market conditions and policy.
"Our Perspective" is available at http://www.richmondfed.org/research/our_perspective/
