Webinar: What the Federal Reserve & Financial Markets Mean For Your Business

Wells Fargo Senior Economist Gary Schlossberg will discuss the state of the U.S. economy and provide an overview for Soligent dealers of what monetary policy is, how the Federal Reserve uses tools to influence the economy, and what it all means for your business over the next year. 

The U.S. economy is in a transformative period, moving from adjustment to the 2008-09 financial upheaval and subsequent adjustment to a more “normal” economic cycle, complete with fundamental changes in economic and monetary policy. We’ll discuss these changes and how they might affect the outlook over the next year and beyond for an economy facing the usual late-cycle “headwinds” and ongoing structural weaknesses contributing to moderate, stop-go growth in the past eight years. We’ll also discuss how interest rates might be affected as the Federal Reserve attempts to nudge them higher in an environment of low inflation and with a minimal effect on financial-market stability, the role of fiscal stimulus in supporting economic growth and in shaping the outlook for interest rates and how international conditions affect U.S. economic performance.
