When: Tuesday, March 22, 2022, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. EDT
What: March 2022 marks the two-year anniversary of widespread COVID-related lockdowns in the United States and the beginning of an unprecedented policy response. Two years in, as the pandemic lingers, some parts of the economy are straining against strong demand while other parts of the economy are still languishing.
On Tuesday, March 22, 2022, The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution will host a webcast that takes stock of the state of the economy, the state of public health, and the relationship between the two. The webcast will include a welcome and introductions from Hamilton Project Director Wendy Edelberg and a fireside chat between Mary C. Daly, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, and Peter Orszag, CEO of financial advisory at Lazard Freres & Co. LLC.
The webcast event will coincide with the release of a Hamilton Project economic analysis of household balance sheets.
