Making the Federal Reserve work for everyone

On Thursday, August 25, EPI’s Josh Bivens joined the Fed Up coalition, eight Federal Reserve presidents, and two Federal Reserve governors in a discussion about monetary policy and governance at the Federal Reserve Bank’s annual Economic Policy Symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

EPI’s Valerie Wilson coauthored a new report that describes why the Federal Reserve Bank should be fully public, and explains how this can be achieved. The report also proposes actions to enhance the bank’s public accountability and transparency.
