Economists and economic observers were among the panelists at a discussion on the evolution of policies at the Federal Reserve since its 1913 founding. They discussed the intersection of monetary and fiscal policies and politics, what the purpose of the Federal Reserve was, and what the definition of independence for the board governing it should be. One panelist also discussed presumptive 2016 Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his calls to remove Janet Yellen as the chair of the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors. close
