Fed Governor Ben S. Bernanke on the Economic Outlook for the U.S. & Japan
Thursday, October 7
12 – 2 pm
Read the Event Summary.
Ben S. Bernanke, Member, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
Peter Peterson, Chairman, The Blackstone Group
In his two-year tenure, Federal Reserve Governor Ben S. Bernanke has been widely credited with injecting new and sometimes unorthodox ideas into the Fed’s policy discussions. The Japanese economy suffered an unprecedented bout of deflation, and the U.S. nearly did, in a period of historically low interest rates. Now, both economies are on the mend. With interest rates and oil prices on the rise, Governor Bernanke discusses the experience of both economies and the challenges ahead.
