Ann Owen, the Henry Platt Bristol Professor of Economics, was interviewed for an American Public Media Marketplace broadcast on Tuesday, Dec. 17. The segment, “Three Risks You Didn’t Know about the Fed,” focused on some lesser-known risks of the Federal Reserve tapering off its bond purchases known as quantitative easing (QE).

In addressing the political risk in decisions related to QE, Owen commented, “Certainly if you’re at the Federal Reserve, you would like to implement your monetary policy without taking a lot of criticism from Congress.” Experts from the Brookings Institution, Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business and the University of Wisconsin were also interviewed.
