What is the Fed Up To? A Mercatus Explainer on Recent Fed Actions


In a short webinar hosted by Karen M. Czarnecki, the Mercatus Center's Vice President of Outreach, Karen asked Mercatus Senior Research Fellow David Beckworth questions about the economic fallout from the pandemic of COVID-19, the policy response by the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, and how this could help the economic recovery. Beckworth has written dozens of research papers, policy briefs, and hosts a weekly “Macro Musings” podcast focused on the Fed and macroeconomic policy.
