As Federal Reserve policy makers kick off their two-day meeting to discuss whether the U.S. economy and the global economic situation are stable enough to raise interest rates, The Wall Street Journal’s central banking coverage team gathers Wednesday morning to discuss this much-anticipated Fed decision.
Join Nell Henderson, global central banks editor; Jon Hilsenrath, chief economics correspondent; and Greg Ip, chief economics commentator; as they discuss the factors the Fed will weigh in deciding if rates will increase for the first time since 2006. David Wessel, a Wall Street Journal contributor and the director of the Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy at the Brookings Institution, will moderate the lively discussion.
The event is the first in a series being offered by our team of journalists contributing to WSJ Pro Central Banking, a premium membership service.
