The House Financial Services Subcommittee on National Security, International Development, and Monetary Policy invites you to a roundtable discussion and briefing about tools and strategies for the next recession.
On June 4-5, officials at the Federal Reserve will convene in Chicago to undertake a review of “strategies, tools, and communication practices it uses to pursue its mandate of maximum employment and price stability.” Learn from economic experts about what this review entails, and how Congress can weigh in with its own recommendations for making the next economic recession less painful for our constituents.

As it reflects on the long, slow, and inequitable recovery from the Great Recession, the Fed will examine the tools it deployed after the financial crisis, and consider how those tools might be updated or altered to better respond to the next economic downturn. It is important for Congress to understand the implications of this Fed review, and to contribute to the conversation about what the Fed should do in the event of another crash or recession.
