Maria Hampton, vice president and regional executive at the Louisville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, welcomes attendees to "Louisville's Dialogue with the Fed: A Regional Economic Briefing," held March 26, 2014. Hampton discusses how the collection of anecdotal research from local business and community leaders has proven to be a valuable resource. Knowledge of these everyday business experiences, Hampton explains, helps the St. Louis Fed president and other Fed economists provide more comprehensive forecasts. Hampton then introduces the four speakers: Kevin Kliesen, business economist and research officer at the St. Louis Fed; Charles Gascon, regional economist with the St. Louis Fed; Charles "Chip" Blankenship, Ph.D., president and CEO or GE Appliances and Lighting; and Ted Smith, Ph.D, chief of economic growth and innovation at Louisville Metro Government.
