St. Louis Fed President James Bullard participated in a panel discussion at the Frankfurt European Banking Congress in Frankfurt, Germany. He shared his views on multiple topics, including the potential impact of proposed legislative action on the U.S. economy, the St. Louis Fed’s regime-based approach to near-term U.S. macroeconomic and monetary policy projections, and whether he currently sees a bubble in the U.S. economy.
Other panelists included John Cryan of Deutsche Bank; Pentti Hakkarainen of the Bank of Finland; Andréa M. Maechler of the Swiss National Bank; and Volker Wieland of the Institute for Monetary and Financial Stability (IMFS), Goethe University Frankfurt and the German Council of Economic Experts. Melinda Crane of Deutsche Welle TV in Berlin moderated the panel, which was titled “Monetary Policy: Which Road Ahead?”
