Louisville Regional Economic Briefing: About this Lecture

March 25, 2014

The Louisville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis hosted two Fed economists, as well as two noted local business leaders, who each shared their views on the Louisville and U.S. economies. Kevin Kliesen, a St. Louis Fed economist, delivered a national outlook on the U.S. economy. Charles Gascon, a regional economist with the St. Louis Fed, then offered a more local perspective by providing his outlook on the Louisville economy and discussing the St. Louis Fed Economic Index for Cities.

Next, Charles (Chip) Blankenship, Ph.D., president and CEO of GE Appliances and Lighting, and Ted Smith, Ph.D., the chief of economic growth and innovation for Louisville Metro Government, offered their hometown perspectives on the current and future economic outlook of the Louisville region.
