Businesses and economists alike have been abuzz about a dramatic shift in Federal Reserve monetary policy. During our March program, economists from The Conference Board will examine the business implications of our latest US and global economic forecasts with special focus on scenarios related to monetary policy, inflation, and interest rates.

  • Will Federal Reserve monetary policy boost business confidence and investment?
  • Why has inflation stayed under control in a tight labor market?
  • Can businesses count on few if any rate hikes in 2019?
  • How will interest rate movements shape consumer demand and business investment trends?
