Online registration for this event has now closed, but you may register at the door.

The Federal Reserve is in the headlines almost daily as the ongoing performance of the economy is under critical review and the Fed's leadership is scheduled to be changed in January. The Federal Reserve Act establishing the Fed was enacted 100 years ago in December 1913.

In recognition of the Fed's 100th birthday, this symposium examines and evaluates the past performance of the Fed in achieving its assigned goals of financial stability and high macroeconomic performance - full employment, high economic growth and price stability - by two economic historians and its current performance by an important Fed policy-maker. Finally, additional non-Fed financial analysts speculate on the future of the Fed.
