Behind the Curtain: The FOMC Meeting in Review

Presented by

Vincent Reinhart, John Tobin, Stephanie Hill & Scott Ullum

About this talk

The Federal Reserve (Fed) appears to be approaching the end of this tightening cycle. With the banking crisis mostly a memory, we expect a bias for maintaining rates at a restrictive plateau and a 25-basis-point hike in May. Questions remain. Will the market believe the Fed? Will we tip into recession? How soon will we have to address the debt ceiling? Step behind the curtain for some answers with Chief Economist and one-time Fed staffer Vincent Reinhart, Dreyfus Chief Investment Officer John Tobin and Mellon’s Head of Index Stephanie Hill to review the May Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting. Please view the transcript under the attachments tab for important disclosures.
