Levitt Center Director and Henry Platt Bristol Professor of Economics Ann Owen was interviewed for an American Public Media Marketplace Morning Report segment titled “What’s Next for the Federal Reserve” on March 16. Owen spoke with MarketPlace immediately following the Federal Reserve’s announcement that there would be no change in interest rates.
“The tone of this [the Federal Reserve’s statement] is much more optimistic than it was in January,” Owen said. She pointed to the fact that the economy is being affected by many events and issues outside the Fed’s control.
