Because of the applied focus of my research and my experience as a research
economist at the Federal Reserve, I have given speeches on a broad range of
macroeconomic topics to non-academic audiences. The topics range from global
economic developments, to monetary policy, to labor market conditions. The
audiences that I have spoken to include business executives, hedge-fund managers,
HR executives, workforce development staff, and, of course, policymakers. Below is
a list of recent presentations.
These speeches reflect my personal views at the time that I gave them and do not necessarily
reflect the views of any institutions that I am, or have been, affiliated with.
