KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI –  The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City announced today the 44th annual Economic Policy Symposium will be conducted online, Aug. 27 to Aug. 28. The year’s theme is “Navigating the Decade Ahead: Implications for Monetary Policy.”

Since 1978, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City has sponsored a symposium on an important economic issue facing the U.S. and world economies. Beginning in 1982, the symposium was hosted at the Jackson Lake Lodge at Grand Teton National Park. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the venue is closed, but the event will continue remotely this year with international central bankers, Federal Reserve officials, academics and a small number of private sector economists participating via an online format.

The event will be live streamed to the public. Additional details will be shared at a later date.
