A visit from Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond President Tom Barkin

At Mason last week, Thomas Barkin made his first public appearance since joining the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond as President and CEO in January. This was a terrific opportunity for our students, faculty, staff, and greater community to learn more about the role the Fed plays in setting monetary policy, strengthening our financial system, and shaping other aspects of our economy.

Please see the video below. Mr. Barkin’s speech begins at the six-minute mark, and his Q&A with Mason School of Business Dean Maury Peiperl and myself begins at the 20-minute mark.
