After serving 10 years as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Bill Poole has much to say. The St. Louis Fed's 2007 annual report features an in-depth interview with Poole, who retired March 31. He discusses how monetary policy was affected by the turbulent economic events that marked his tenure, as well as the FOMC's communication policies and the evolving nature of Reserve banks. Also included are highlights from some of Poole's nearly 150 speeches as president and comments from colleagues regarding his impact on monetary policy over the past decade.
