Join us as George Selgin shares the best intentions and unintended consequences of the Federal Reserve's actions following the 2008 financial crisis. We will learn how changes in Fed policy following the crisis deepened and prolonged the Great Recession, how these consequences persist today, and why the Fed and Congress should work to end their policy "experiment" quickly and in a way that does not cause further harm.

George Selgin is the Director of the Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives at the Cato Institute. For this discussion, he will draw from his recently published "Floored!: How a Misguided Fed Experiment Deepened and Prolonged the Great Recession".

Discussion will begin promptly at 12:00. Bring your own lunch or choose from options at the venue at Reverie Roasters.
