Richmond Federal Reserve Bank Field Trip
On April 6th, 9 EC/BU cadets and Maj. Allen traveled to Richmond to spend the "Day at the Fed." The cadets were joined by students from several other area colleges. The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond treated the students to lunch and a full day of panelists and presentations, including an informal discussion with Fed president Jeffrey Lacker. The panel sessions highlighted the diversity of economic outcomes across the 5 states and Washington DC, the bank's history, and implications of the financial crisis.
