The National Economists Club is excited to welcome James Bullard, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, speaking at our annual Summer Signature event on August 6th at the National Press Club. Dr. Bullard is currently a voting member of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) which meets regularly to set the direction of U.S. monetary policy. Dr. Bullard was an early proponent of inflation targeting (since adopted by the FOMC) and was instrumental in moving the FOMC towards Quantitative Easing.
James (“Jim”) Bullard is the president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. In that role, he is a participant on the Federal Reserve’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), which meets regularly to set the direction of U.S. monetary policy. He also oversees the Federal Reserve’s Eighth District, including activities at the St. Louis headquarters and its branches in Little Rock, Ark., Louisville, Ky., and Memphis, Tenn.
A noted economist and policymaker, Bullard makes Fed transparency and dialogue a priority on the international and national stage as well as on Main Street. He serves on the board of trustees of the United Way U.S.A., the board of directors of the St. Louis Regional Chamber and the board of directors of Concordance Academy of Leadership. He is co-editor of the Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, and a member of the Central Bank Research Association’s senior council. He is an honorary professor of economics at Washington University in St. Louis, where he also sits on the advisory council of the economics department and the advisory board of the Center for Dynamic Economics. A native of Forest Lake, Minn., Bullard received his doctorate in economics from Indiana University in Bloomington.
