Mischkin full body shot copyThe Economic Freedom Institute of Manhattanville College is honored to present a lecture by Dr. Frederic S. Mishkin entitled "Central Banking after the Crisis." It will explore where central banking is headed after the recent financial crisis.

Mishkin received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1976 and has since written numerous books and articles. He is the author of The Economics of Money, Banking and Financial Markets and the Alfred Lerner Professor of Banking and Financial Institutions at the Graduate School of Business, Columbia University. He has also served as Governor of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System from 2006 to 2008.

"The current economy with tax increases and reductions in government spending, are both necessary to reduce the Federal defici," said Anna Sachoko Gandolfi, Director of the Economics Freedom Institute. "It is monetary policy that will have to do the job of keeping the economy growing and bringing down the unemployment rate."

Gandolfi believes that Mishkin's lecture is very timely. The Institute's goal is to act as an enterprise, which both the popular and scholarly discussion of issues related to economic freedom can take place..

Mishkin's lecture will discuss the central bank census before the crisis and then will outline the key facts resulting from the crisis that require a change in the way central banks conduct their business. This lecture enhances upon The Economic Freedom Institute's values in public policies that promote and impinge upon economic freedom.

"Not only is Mishkin an excellent speaker who is able to address and describe complex concepts in an understandable manner, but he also was an insider in the Federal Reserve System," Gandolfi said. "Now he can look objectively at recent Federal policies and support or criticize them, as he sees fit."

Mishkin's lecture, "Central Banking after the Crisis" will be held on Wednesday, March 27, at 7 p.m. in the West Room, Reid Castle, Manhattanville College. A reception will immediately follow the lecture in the Ophir Room of Reid Castle.
