ECONversations Webcast: From Recession to Recovery - May 18, 2017
Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta ECONversations
Today, the country has more jobs, the unemployment rate is lower, and the housing market and consumers' finances are generally in better shape than they were in the months just before and during the Great Recession. But other, more lasting, forces—such as an aging population and slow productivity growth—continue to weigh on the economy.
This edition of ECONversations explores the many facets of the economic rebound, including the cyclical components, the longer-lasting secular trends, and the role of policy in the recovery.
Date: Thursday, May 18, 2017
Time: 2:00–2:30 p.m. ET
This event is open to the public. Registration is required.
