About the Economic Symposium

Each year since 1978, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City has sponsored a symposium on an important economic issue facing the U.S. and world economies. Symposium participants include prominent central bankers, finance ministers, academics, and financial market participants from around the world. The participants convene to discuss the economic issues, implications, and policy options pertaining to the symposium topic. The symposium proceedings include papers, commentary, and discussion. 

The 2020 Economic Policy Symposium “Navigating the Decade Ahead: Implications for Monetary Policy,” will be conducted online, Aug. 27 to Aug. 28. Learn more about this year's symposium here.
