Presented by UD’s Center for Economic Education and Entrepreneurship in the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics in partnership with Lyons Companies, Wilmington, the forecast will feature speakers from a variety of backgrounds. The event will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 3, from 8:30-11:30 a.m. in Clayton Hall. Panelists include:
- James Bullard, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis;
- Jay Bryson, managing director and global economist for Wells Fargo; and
- Michael K. Farr, president of Farr, Miller and
Washington and author of The Arrogance Cycle.
Jon Hilsenrath, chief economic correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, will moderate the panel discussion. Not attending is long-time forecast presenter Charles Plosser, who heads the Federal Reserve Philadelphia region. Plosser is retiring.
Plosser’s remarks drew national media attention last year, since he sat on the Fed’s Open Market Committee, which sets monetary policy. Bullard will join the panel in 2016.
