Leaders across the nation are becoming increasingly concerned about the possibility of rising inflation and a falling dollar. Others are less worried about the level of the dollar than they are about the volatility of the dollar exchange rate against other major currencies. American leaders have long emphasized the importance of a strong dollar and a stable dollar. But today, rising levels of federal debt, the lingering effects of economic recession in the United States and internationally, plus the recent, dramatic policies of the Federal Reserve combine to heighten concerns over the future of the dollar and United States exchange rate policy generally. Please join our distinguished guests to discuss the need for a stable dollar, shortcomings in current monetary policies and institutions, and necessary adjustments to achieve a stable dollar.
