Will the Fed Drop Its ‘Patient’ Stance? Chat Live With WSJ’s Hilsenrath – Real Time Economics

    Federal Reserve policy makers, who meet Tuesday and Wednesday, are weighing whether to drop their “patient” stance on interest-rate policy.  


    Federal Reserve officials gather Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss whether to drop their pledge to be “patient” before their first interest-rate increase. Their decision could open the door to lifting the Fed’s rate target from near zero, where it has been since late 2008.

    Join Wall Street Journal economics correspondents Jon Hilsenrath and Sudeep Reddy for a live Spreecast video chat Tuesday at 11 a.m. ET to discuss the Fed’s decision, its path in the coming months and the global economic backdrop.

    You can join the conversation and ask a question:
