Engine of Inequality: The Fed and the Future of Wealth in America

Live Online Book Forum | March 4, 2021 | 12 — 1 PM EST

Following the 2008 financial crisis, the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy placed much greater focus on stabilizing the market than on helping struggling Americans. As a result, the richest Americans got a lot richer while the middle class shrank and economic and wealth inequality skyrocketed. George Selgin, director of the Cato Institute’s Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives, will interview Karen Petrou on her new book, Engine of Inequality: The Fed and the Future of Wealth in America, and the pragmatic solutions inside for creating more inclusive monetary policy and equality‐​enhancing financial regulation as quickly and painlessly as possible.
