November 22, 2002
The second annual Philadelphia Fed Policy Forum, "Crises, Contagion, and Coordination: Issues for Policymakers in the Global Economy," was held on November 22, 2002 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
The Policy Forum, organized by the Federal Reserve Bank of
Philadelphia's Research Department, brought together a group of highly
respected academics, policymakers, and market economists, for a discussion of
important macroeconomic and monetary policy issues that the Federal Reserve
will need to grapple with in the coming year. The Policy Forum was not intended
to be a traditional academic conference on monetary policy, nor was it intended
to be a discussion of issues relevant to the next FOMC meeting. Rather, the
Policy Forum took a longer term perspective and attempted to engage the right
people in a discussion of current macroeconomic research and its implications
for monetary policy.
