Econ Speaker Series Features Reserve Bank VP

Christopher J. Waller, executive vice president and director of research for the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank, will address economic effects of Trump's policy reform proposals as part of the Economics Speaker Series.

At 7 p.m. April 10 in the Student Union Building Georgian Room C, Waller will discuss some of the Trump administration’s economic proposals, including border adjustment taxes and other tax reforms, as well as the potential effects that could be felt in the Midwest and what role, if any, that monetary policy might play in response.

The presentation is free and open to the public. A question-and-answer session will follow the address.

Waller joined the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank nine years ago after holding the Gilbert F. Schaefer Chair of Economics for six years at the University of Notre Dame. He has occupied positions as: an Erskine Fellow at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand; the Carol Martin Gatton Chair of Macroeconomics and Monetary Economics at the University of Kentucky; and research fellow at the Center for European Integrations Studies at the University of Bonn. He has also taught at the National University of Kiev-Mohyla in the Ukraine, at Washington University in St. Louis, the University of Mannheim in Germany and Indiana University. Additionally, he was a visiting scholar with the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
