Yu-Ting Chiang, economist with the St. Louis Fed, discusses macroeconomic uncertainty during a Timely Topics podcast episode.

“People’s tendency to learn more information about the economy during crisis and downturns can actually lead to greater uncertainty,” says Yu-Ting Chiang, economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, explaining the effect of macroeconomic uncertainty on information consumption and decision making. Chiang discusses his research on economic crises with Shera Dalin, a coordinator in the Bank’s External Engagement and Corporate Communications Division.


Economists and experts talk about their research, topics in the news and issues related to the Fed. Views expressed are not necessarily those of the St. Louis Fed or the Federal Reserve System.
