Perspectives on Household Financial Stability: Call-in Session

Perspectives on Household Financial Stability: Call-in Session

Rebuilding household balance sheets is essential for families to gain greater financial security. Join community development practitioners, consumer credit counselors, researchers, and others from across the country at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, November 7, for a call-in session on the topic.

This audioconference will provide an introduction to a new framework developed by the St. Louis Fed around household financial stability issues with a focus on three key questions:

  • What is the state of U.S. household balance sheets?
  • Why do they matter for family well-being and for economic growth?
  • What can policymakers, researchers, practitioners, and others do to improve them?

In addition to sharing the broad conceptual framework of this effort, session speakers will briefly describe the project's current and planned activities, and discuss new findings about losses in household wealth following the Great Recession.

Register for this interactive session at the Connecting Communities™ website. Participation is free, but preregistration is required. Participants are encouraged to submit questions by e-mail in advance of the session.

This event is part of the Federal Reserve's Connecting Communities™ series, which is a national initiative intended to provide community development practitioners, financial institution representatives, policymakers, and others with timely information on emerging and important community and economic development topics.
