Policy Conference Interviews Highlight the Value of Research

Policy Conference Interviews Highlight the Value of Research

Each year, the Research division of the St. Louis Fed sponsors a policy conference. The conference seeks to provide perspectives on whether the policies adopted in the past still work well today and whether developments at the frontier of research can be applied to improve policy.  The 38th Annual Fall Conference volume, as well as video interviews with presenters, is now available. In simple terms, the interviews bring the main findings of the research presented during the conference to a wider audience.

"Two Views of International Monetary Policy Coordination"


St. Louis Fed President James Bullard discussed a traditional view and an alternative view of monetary policy coordination at the 27th Asia/Pacific Business Outlook Conference. While he noted that there is room for debate, Bullard endorsed the traditional view, in which policymakers follow good policy focused on domestic variables and the gains from international monetary policy coordination are small.

"The Rise and Fall of Labor Force Participation in the U.S."

In The Regional Economist, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard shared his perspectives on U.S. labor force participation. He concluded that demographically based empirical models of the trend in the labor force participation rate do a good job of explaining the data. To the extent these models are correct, Bullard said the unemployment rate remains as good an indicator of overall labor market health as it has been historically.
