U.S. Economic Outlook and Implications for Monetary Policy

AFTERNOON DISCUSSION
Tuesday, April 16, 1:30–3:15 PM 

After a period of steady growth, signs of pressure are beginning to emerge in the global economy. In the United States, the Federal Reserve, buoyed by a steadily strengthening economy, raised interest rates four times last year. Still, with the return of volatility and growth of economic and geopolitical risks, the path forward is unclear. In this program, former Fed Vice Chair Donald Kohn and former U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew discuss current economic trends, U.S. monetary policy, and its impact on the U.S. economy.

Speakers:
Donald Kohn, Robert V. Roosa Chair in International Economics & Senior Fellow in Economic Studies, Brookings Institution; former Vice Chair, Board of Governors, Federal Reserve System
Jacob J. Lew, Visiting Professor of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University; Partner, Lindsay Goldberg LLC; former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury 

Moderator:
Gerard Baker, Editor At Large, The Wall Street Journal 

Agenda:
1:30-2:00 PM Registration and Reception
2:00-3:15 PM Discussion and Q&A
