With the Federal Reserve undergoing a leadership transition and persistent questions about tapering our accommodative monetary policy, America’s central banking system seems to be at the center of much debate.  With this in mind, the Bush Institute has convened a conference to examine how monetary policy impacts economic growth, while addressing how America’s central banking system can become more effective.  Contributing to the discourse will be a conversation between former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke and former White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten.
