Almost Everyone Expects a Recession. Could the Economy Avoid One? – The Washington Post, Pres. Daly Talks to Reporters on November 21, 2022

President Daly said that as she travels around her district — which spans nine western states and is the Fed system’s largest district both by geography and by the size of its economy — she hears that “people’s own situations feel different than the situations they fear are out there, or that they even see out there.”

The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (SF Fed) serves the public by promoting a healthy, sustainable economy, and supporting the nation’s financial and payment systems. With offices in Los Angeles, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Portland and Phoenix, the Bank serves the Twelfth Federal Reserve District, which includes one-fifth of the nation’s population and represents the world’s fourth-largest economy. As part of the nation’s central bank, the SF Fed informs monetary policy, regulates banks, administers certain consumer protection laws and acts as a financial partner to the U.S. government.
