Inflation in the U.S. Economy: Pricing Pressures Affecting Households

Learn how prices are measured to calculate inflation. Whose responsibility is it to curb high inflation? What drives inflation higher or lower? Find answers to these questions and much more as Nick Sly, Economist and Denver Branch Executive, discusses recent developments with inflation pressures in the U.S. economy. His presentation will focus on both the experiences of households and businesses, as well as the policy actions aimed at restoring price stability. Following the presentation, Rob Catlett, a Roe R. Cross Distinguished Professor and Economic Education Center Director for Emporia State University, will offer views on translating this information for students.

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.
