Let’s start 2024 exploring some key indicators that economists will be watching with Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland Research Director Ed Knotek. As research director, Knotek leads a team of economists who conduct research and analysis of economic conditions to inform monetary policy decisions and improve understanding of our economy.

How does what the public thinks will happen with inflation influence the economy’s trajectory?
Following the presentation, we will take your questions.
