 Are you curious about interest rates, and the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy views and actions? Do you have questions about the current economy? Are you curious about what the Minneapolis Fed does within the Federal Reserve System? Do you care about income inequality, and what might be done about it? Are you worried that banks are still too big to fail?

 Neel Kashkari, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, will host a Town Hall to answer these and other questions on Tuesday, Oct. 8, from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m., at the Atwood Memorial Center on the campus of St. Cloud State University. The event is free and will feature a dynamic, free-form audience Q&A with Kashkari, who is a member of the Federal Open Market Committee, the body of the Federal Reserve System that sets national monetary policy, including interest rates.
