The Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corporation will hold an open forum with Narayana Kocherlakota, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, Tuesday, Oct. 19, at 2:30 p.m. in the AgCountry Auditorium at Richard H. Barry Hall.
Kocherlakota’s presentation is titled “Inside the Federal Open Market Committee.” As the nation deals with financial problems that are the greatest since the 1930s, it is difficult to understand all the implications. The Federal Reserve has never had a more important role. As president, Kocherlakota serves on the Federal Open Market Committee, the policymaking arm of the Federal Reserve System, consisting of the presidents of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks and members of the Board of Governors.
Faculty and students are invited to the event.
A luncheon with Kocherlakota is scheduled for Oct. 19 at noon at the Fargo Ramada Plaza Suites, 1635 42nd St. S. The event is open to public and tickets are available.
