38th Annual NABE Economic Policy Conference
Policy Options for Sustainable and Inclusive Growth
March 20-22, 2022
The Ritz-Carlton
Washington, DC

Presented by

Federal Reserve Board of Governors Vice Chair Richard Clarida at the 2020 NABE Economic Policy Conference

Roger Ferguson received the Paul A. Volcker Lifetime Achievement Award for Economic Policy from NABE (2020)

Arranged around the theme "Policy Options for Sustainable and Inclusive Growth," the conference will assess the global pandemic and economic recovery and the mounting pressures on labor markets, supply chains, and price levels, as well as enduring challenges including economic inequality, fiscal imbalances, and climate change.

The NABE Policy Conference regularly attracts 500+ economists, analysts, policymakers, and business leaders. The largest annual public event in Washington to focus solely on economic policy, the conference tackles policy issues through the pragmatic lens of business leaders and economists. Join us!
