Cleveland Fed launches Center for Inflation Research
Seeks to help policymakers, researchers, and the public gain a better understanding of inflation and its determinants
Building on its long history of research and analysis related to inflation measurement and forecasting, the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland is pleased to announce the launch of the Center for Inflation Research.
The goal of the Center is to help policymakers, researchers, and the public gain a better understanding of inflation and the factors that influence its behavior. The Center will seek to do this through a combination of:
- expanded core research
- a redesigned website with more data and indicators on national price trends along with commentary highlighting key data series
- an annual, rather than biennial, conference series dedicated to inflation
- the creation of an advisory council of leading experts from the United States and abroad
The Center will be managed by Robert Rich, a senior economic and policy advisor in the Bank’s Research Department. Prior to joining the Cleveland Fed in September 2018, Rich was an assistant vice president in the Research Department at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where he served as a founding editor and contributor to the Bank’s Liberty Street Economics blog and as the editor of US Economy in a Snapshot, the Bank’s monthly update of economic and financial developments.
