Boston Fed releases summary of its ‘Fed Listens’ conference on Fed policymaking
Public feedback focused on impacts of tight labor market, low interest rates
The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston today released a high-level summary of its May 13 half-day conference, “New England Perspectives on Fed Policymaking.” The conference brought Fed experts together with nonprofits, small business owners, labor leaders, and advocacy groups, among other stakeholders from around the region.
Boston’s event was one of a series of public forums that Reserve Banks nationwide are holding this year as part of a broad review of the U.S. monetary policy framework, which is the strategy, tools, and communication practices the Fed uses in pursuit of its “dual mandate” – the twin goals of maximum employment and price stability.
