The Philadelphia Fed Policy Forum: "The New Normal for the U.S. Economy"

The 11th Philadelphia Fed Policy Forum, "The New Normal for the U.S. Economy," will be held on Friday, December 4, 2015, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.

The Policy Forum, organized by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s Research Department, brings together a group of highly respected academics, policymakers, and market economists for a discussion of important macroeconomic and monetary policy issues that the Federal Reserve will need to grapple with in the coming years.

The Policy Forum is not intended to be a traditional academic conference on monetary policy, nor a discussion of issues relevant to the next FOMC meeting. Rather, the Policy Forum takes a longer-term perspective and attempts to engage the right people in a discussion of current macroeconomic research and its implications for monetary policy.
