A Hot Economy: Sustainability and Trade-offs

In 2019, the Federal Reserve has launched a listening tour, reaching out to a broad range of people across the country. Through it, the Fed wants to hear views on how best to pursue its mandated goals of maximum employment and stable prices.
The San Francisco Fed hosted one of the Fed Listens tour stops on September 26. At the all-day meeting, invited researchers, policymakers, and public officials, as well as business practitioners and community representatives, discussed the costs, benefits, and sustainability of running a hot economy.
A key goal of the Fed Listens initiative is public accessibility. With that in mind, here are videos and presentations from our sessions.
