How is the Federal Reserve working to bring inflation back down? Research Director Sylvain Leduc discusses this and related topics in the latest installment of FOMC Rewind Live, a video series of policy meeting analysis and insights.
In this video, Sylvain discusses the Federal Open Market Committee’s policy decision at its May 4, 2022, meeting. He specifically addresses the challenges of high inflation and the Fed’s decision to raise the federal funds target rate a half percentage point. He also sheds light on the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet and the expectations for incremental reductions in its size in the months ahead.
In welcoming Sylvain to the stage, Laura Choi, SVP of Public Engagement, also shares some thoughts on the SF Fed’s commitment to being a community-engaged Bank.
FOMC Rewind Live videos are expected to recur around four times a year, providing viewers with leading insights on key policy meetings.
