The US Federal Reserve has been engaged in tapering from their controversial, but successful quantitative easing that has kept US interest rates extremely low. On the Friday, May 2nd show, Andy will be discussing with Mr. Kroszner how the central bank views the US economy, the outlook for US interest rates and why the US housing market is hitting the pause button.
Randall S. Kroszner served as a Governor of the Federal Reserve System from March 2006 until January 2009. During his time as a member of the Federal Reserve Board, he chaired the committee on Supervision and Regulation of Banking Institutions and the committee on Consumer and Community Affairs. In these capacities, he took a leading role in developing responses to the financial crisis and in undertaking new initiatives to improve consumer protection and disclosure, including rules related to home mortgages and credit cards, and was director of NeighborWorks America. He represented the Federal Reserve Board on the Financial Stability Forum (now called the Financial Stability Board), the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, and the Central Bank Governors of the American Continent. As a member of the Fed Board, he was also a voting member of the Federal Open Market Committee.
Mr. Kroszner is one of the most sought-after experts for insights when it comes the Federal Reserve and to the new chair Janet Yellen.
