Easy money is having diminishing effect after years of accommodative policies. Dr. Raghuram Rajan weighs the significant risks incorporated by doing much more, with the difficulties of exiting from easy money. Not only will the first central bank that moves face significant costs, they could also be accused of failing their domestic mandate of maintaining inflation at reasonable levels. Dr. Rajan discusses possible ways policy could evolve, as well as the consequences to global asset prices, inflation and risk.    

U.S. wages are at their lowest level in more than 20 years and workers are growing tired of a stagnant economy. Globalization, coupled with structural economic changes, have created an environment that often rewards capital at a greater rate than it does labor – and workers around the world are, increasingly, saying “enough!” From Brexit to the U.S. election, middle class workers are making their voices heard. Trish Regan examines the policies that need to be enacted now to help change the fate of U.S. workers and strengthen our middle class, while simultaneously encouraging companies to invest in the world’s greatest economy.

With the advent of the financial crisis in 2008 and the role that the federal government played to put the U.S. economy on the road to recovery, what did we learn from that process and how can we plan for continued stability? As one of the original members of the U.S. Department of the Treasury/Federal Reserve Transition Team and then Treasurer of the United States for the following seven years, Treasurer Rios provides her perspectives on lessons learned from her tenure during one of the most consequential times of our nation’s economic history.

Following the 2008 financial crisis, a somewhat pessimistic narrative took hold—the aftermath of crises is always terrible. In truth, new research shows that the aftermath of crises is highly variable. Some aftermaths are truly awful, but some are remarkably benign. The talk explores the source of this variation across time and countries. It shows that the willingness and ability of governments to use economic policy is a crucial determinant of just how much damage a financial crisis does to the overall economy.

How do tax cuts affect the macroeconomy? Do they cause a temporary boom, increase long-run growth, or mainly increase the deficit? The talk will describe the consensus of the empirical evidence on this important topic, and discuss historical case studies such as the Reagan tax cuts of the early 1980s and the dramatic changes in marginal tax rates in the 1920s and 1930s. Based on this information, it will probe the likely effects of the most recent tax cut.

As the financial crisis of 2008 and the ensuing Great Recession recede from the headlines, it is time to take a frank historical look at the episode. How did the severity of the initial shocks that hit the economy—the bursting of the housing bubble, the financial meltdown—compare to its terrible precursor, the Great Depression of the 1930s? How successful were the monetary and fiscal policy responses? Were there policy actions that should have been taken but weren’t? And perhaps most important, have we made reforms and learned lessons that will help us do better in the future?
