Topic SynopsesThe 'Grand Strategy' for Economic Growth
As a member of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors (2006-2011), Kevin Warsh was the Fed’s Chief Liaison to Financial Markets, and played a significant role in stabilizing the turbulent financial markets of 2007 and 2008. A key player during this historic period of time, Warsh offers audiences deep insights and perspective on what our country's leaders need to focus on to turn our economy around.
Tough Calls at the Fed
Based on his years on the front lines as a governor at the Fed during the global financial crisis, Kevin Warsh provides an in-depth understanding of critical issues including economic growth, job creation, regulation, housing, inflation, monetary policy, global trade, and more. With a deep background in financial markets combined with 10 years as a national economic policy advisor, Warsh is able to help large and small companies, as well as individuals, discern their next strategic moves based on the economic headlines.
Rejecting the Requiem
In this speech, Mr. Warsh talks about what he calls 'the new malaise' of slow growth - high unemployment, stagnant wages and low levels of consumer and business sentiment. He explains that we cannot accept this as the''new normal', and instead we need to raise our objectives, improve our policies and be the masters of our own fate.
Regulation and its Discontents
Mr. Warsh addresses the fundamental, underlying political questions raised regarding regulation: What size government is desired? How should it be funded? How are we affected by Sovereign debt? Will we continue to advocate free trade? Are we going to continue being the driving force for open, competitive markets?
An Ode to Independence
Mr. Warsh explains that independence in the conduct of monetary policy is at the core of advanced modern economies. If the Federal Reserve lost its independence, the costs to the economy would be incalculable: Higher inflation, lower standards of living, and a currency that risks losing its reserve status
