Lorraine will discuss the history, structure, role, and responsibilities of the Central Bank and will take questions from the audience. Attendees will leave the presentation with a clearer picture of the unique quasi-governmental structure of the Fed, the historic events that led to that structure; an understanding of current Fed leadership; recent evolution in the payment industry; and the role of the Fed in the United States economy.
