Panel Discussion: "The Federal Reserve Board and Stock Market Volatility"

For Immediate Release: August 15, 2000

WASHINGTON, DC– The Office of Representative Dennis Kucinich (Ohio) and the Center for Economic and Policy Research will host a panel discussion, “The Federal Reserve Board and Stock Market Volatility,” on Tuesday, August 22, 2000 from 10:00 – 11:30 A.M. in room 2203 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

As the Federal Reserve Board debates its next move on interest rates, this panel of discussants will consider:

  • Has the Fed been irresponsible in its hands-off attitude toward the stock market?
  • Are interest rate hikes the answer to every question of economic policy?

Moderated by Mark Weisbrot, Co-Director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), this discussion will include:

  • Dean Baker, Co-Director, Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR)
  • Tom Palley, Assistant Director of Public Policy, AFL-CIO
