Featuring Rep. Kevin Brady, Chairman, Joint Economic Committee; moderated by Mark Calabria, Director of Financial Regulation Studies, Cato Institute.

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), chairman of Congress’s Joint Economic Committee, is at the forefront of this debate. He will be discussing his proposals both for monetary reform (Sound Dollar Act) and for a bipartisan Centennial Monetary Commission to review the Fed’s performance and make recommendations for its role in the future.
