Spring 2013 Distinguished Speaker in International Finance and Economic Policy
Richard W. Fisher, President & CEO, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas
An Economic & Monetary Policy Outlook
(with reference to Systemic Risk and "Too-Big-Too-Fail")
Richard W. Fisher is President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. As a member of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the Federal Reserve’s principal monetary policymaking group, Fisher is known to be one of the Committee’s most “hawkish” members. He is also widely known for his strong views on the need to contain banks considered “too-big-to-fail” (TBTF). In his remarks, Fisher will examine developments in the U.S. and global economy, the role of monetary policy in supporting economic growth and why it's important that we downsize TBTF financial institutions.
