Partner Event: International Distinguished Lecture: US Economy & Monetary Policy
From: Monday April 10, 2017, 12:15 pm
To: Monday April 10, 2017, 2:00 pm
The Australian Centre for Financial Studies (a part of Monash Business School) will be conducting an International Distinguished Lecture in Melbourne on Monday 10th April, 2017 hosting James "Jim" Bullard, President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. President Bullard will present on the "US Economy and Monetary Policy". This will be the only public event President Bullard will be providing whilst in Australia.
James “Jim” Bullard is the president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. He oversees the activities of the Eighth Federal Reserve District, including operations in the St. Louis headquarters and its branches in Little Rock, Ark., Louisville, Ky., and Memphis, Tenn.
He also participates on the Federal Reserve’s Federal Open Market Committee, or FOMC, which meets eight times each year to set the direction of U.S. monetary policy.
Bullard is a noted economist and scholar, and his positions are founded on research-based thinking and an intellectual openness to new theories and explanations. He is often an early voice for change. In addition, he makes public outreach and dialogue a priority to help build a more transparent and accessible Fed.
He regularly engages with many audiences—including academics, policymakers, business and labor organisations, charities, students and media, among other public groups—to discuss monetary policy and the U.S. economy and to help further the regional Reserve banks’ role of being the voice of Main Street.
