ATLANTA - The World Affairs Council of Atlanta will host a conversation between Richard W. Fisher, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and Dennis P. Lockhart, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, at Georgia State University's Student Center on Monday, April 18 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Lockhart is chairman of the council.
The topic of the event is "Making Monetary Policy in a Globalized World." Fisher and Lockhart will examine the role of globalization in the financial crisis and recovery, and how the process of deepening economic integration between countries alters the environment in which U.S. monetary policy decisions are made. The two Federal Reserve presidents also will discuss trade, including the rise of protectionism, and will conclude their conversation with comments on where the recovery is likely to go from here.
The Economic Forecasting Center at Georgia State University's J. Mack Robinson College of Business is supporting the event, which is free and open to the public.
