Topic: Tracking the Fed in Transition
Speaker: R. Mark Rogers, Senior U.S. Economist, Econoday, Inc.
The Federal Reserve is in transition, trying to determine when and how fast to taper its quantitative easing (QE) programs with a new Fed chair. Rogers focuses on how to track Fed policy and the key economic news affecting Fed decisions. Unwinding the Fed’s hugely expanded balance sheet will require innovative techniques; some likely but alternative scenarios will be discussed.
