The century-old Federal Reserve has become a key focal point for policymakers looking to repair the financial markets and restore economic growth in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.

While much of the conversation has focused on monetary policy reform, particularly with calls to 'audit the Fed,' concerns have also arisen regarding the Federal Reserve’s growing regulatory role.

Please join the Mercatus Center for a panel discussion on Federal Reserve reform featuring Dino Falaschetti, Stephen Matteo Miller, Hester Peirce, Scott Sumner, and J.W. Verret. From nominal GDP targeting, to Federal Open Market Committee institutional changes, to regulatory reform and rethinking the Fed’s approach to capital requirements, Mercatus Center scholars are uniquely positioned to offer a broad range of expertise on what fundamental Federal Reserve reform could look like.

Space is limited. Please register online for this event. 

This event is free and open to all congressional and federal agency staff. This event is not open to the general public. Lunch will be provided. Due to space constraints, this event is not open to interns. Questions? Please contact Samantha Hopta at shopta@mercatus.gmu.edu or (703) 993-4967.
