Ann Owen

Ann Owen, the Henry Platt Bristol Professor of Economics, was interviewed by American Public Media's Marketplace Senior Reporter Nancy Marshall-Genzer for a segment addressing new Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s upcoming report to Congress.

In the Feb. 27 segment titled New Fed Chair to Congress: Steady Ahead, Owen predicted that Powell would stress the Fed’s focus on data and offer reassurance that the Fed would continue to guide monetary policy by the same principles in spite of some market volatility. She also said that Powell would avoid specific interest rate predictions.
