May 23 Dialogue To Focus on Household Financial Stability


St. LOUIS - The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis will present "After the Fall: Rebuilding Family Balance Sheets, Rebuilding the Economy," as part of its next Dialogue with the Fed: Beyond Today's Financial Headlines evening lecture series on Thursday, May 23, 2013.

Ray Boshara, senior adviser and director of the St. Louis Fed's Center for Household Financial Stability and William Emmons, assistant vice president and the Center's chief economist, will explore the lingering damage to household financial stability caused by the Great Recession of 2007-2009.
