In late March, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke will teach a series of four classes on “The Federal Reserve and Its Role in Today’s Economy.” The Minneapolis Fed will open its doors for evening viewings of the lectures, followed by a dialogue on their content.
The classes, which begin March 20, are part of a course offered to undergraduates at the George Washington University School of Business. Viewings at the Minneapolis Fed will be held in the evening on the same day as the lectures, and after the video visitors will be able to ask questions and discuss content with Minneapolis Fed economists and staff.
