Stevenson signs onto letter urging approval of Federal Reserve Board nominees

February 8, 2022

Ford School professor Betsey Stevenson, along with multiple other economic experts, sent a letter to the Senate Banking Committee urging them to approve the current nominees for the Federal Reserve Board.

"In addition to representing among the best legal and economic minds in our country, this slate of nominees has demonstrated sound judgment and collegial professionalism throughout their careers," Stevenson, professor of public policy and economics, and her co-signees wrote. "The current nominees also are the most demographically diverse slate of candidates ever proposed to the Federal Reserve Board. They would bring needed perspectives on how Federal Reserve policies can contribute to better and more equitable outcomes in the United States."
