About this Event

After 2020’s initial US coronavirus outbreak and the US economic shutdown, the Federal Reserve stepped in with a broad array of actions, including to provide up to $2.3 trillion in loans to limit the damage and to further prop up an ailing economy. Now, with the rollout of a promising COVID-19 vaccine, there seems to be hope of a better future ahead. Will 2021 see the US economy—and other global economies—roar back to life, or has COVID-19 wrought lasting structural damage? As more people around the world receive the COVID-19 vaccination, Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan weighs in on the possibility of a global economic recovery.
