Policy Panel


The program on Saturday, June 18 will feature a policy panel sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and open to the press. The broad theme of the panel will be exploring the lessons learned by major central banks after reviewing their respective monetary policy frameworks, how monetary policy has been tested by the pandemic, and how policymakers see the post-pandemic economy shifting and its potential impact on monetary policy going forward. This event will take place at the George W. Bush Presidential Center and will be followed by a reception. ID's will not be required to enter the Bush Institute, however attendees will pass through a security screening magnetometer (metal detector) when they arrive.
