Economics in the Hot Seat

What do Uber and the Federal Reserve have in common? They both hire economists! Did you know that some of your favorite brands also hire economists? But what do economists actually do?

It’s time to find out! The Federal Reserve Banks of Richmond and St. Louis are going to put economics in the hot seat with a fast-paced event that will challenge real life economists to share the ways they use economics in their work to solve interesting problems for businesses like Uber Eats, institutions like the Federal Reserve and to track the overall performance of the economy at the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

This event is being co-hosted by the Richmond Fed and St. Louis Fed. Please note the event times for each time zone: 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. ET | 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. CT.
