A conversation with Federal Reserve Governor Christopher Waller 

Tuesday, January 16, 2024, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EST

With the inflation rate coming down, the labor market still tight, and a soft landing in sight, the Federal Reserve faces some big questions this year: Has the war on inflation really been won? How will the Fed decide when it’s time to cut interest rates? What lessons have been learned from the post-COVID burst of inflation? What issues should the Fed consider when it revisits the monetary policy framework adopted in 2020?

On January 16 at 11:00 am EST, Federal Reserve Governor Christopher Waller will offer his outlook for the economy and monetary policy. Following his remarks, he will respond to questions from David Wessel, director of the Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy at Brookings, and from the in-person and virtual audiences. Nominated by President Donald Trump, Waller joined the seven-member Federal Reserve Board in December 2020 after 11 years as research director of the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank.
