美國新冠疫情日記 11/21

      The Fed’s Energy And Economic Conference


Today I joined the Dallas and Kansas City Fed’s Fifth Annual Joint Energy Virtual Conference. The President of the Dallas Fed, Robert Kaplan, gave the keynote speech and talked about the state of the energy sector and the outlook for global oil and gas markets, the opportunities and risks of the global energy transition and the changing of the U.S. energy landscape.


This whole day event included sessions in the near-term outlook for global oil and gas markets, opportunities and risks of the global energy transition and challenges in the energy finance.


President Kaplan expected that the 2020 GDP will show a contraction of approximately 3-3.5% and that the unemployment rate at the end of the year will be at approximately 7.5%. These forecasts, of course, depend on the path of coronavirus.


Under the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank System there are 12 branches including branches in Dallas and Kansas City.


Today we finally have a vaccine coming to rescue us from the pandemic. We also saw structural changes in the U.S. economy, including demographics, productivity and Technology-Enabled Disruption.


The Federal Reserve is an independent agency that guides our nation’s financial and economic direction. Their decisions totally affect our future.
