About the Economic Symposium

Each year since 1978, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City has sponsored a symposium on an important economic issue facing the U.S. and world economies. Symposium participants include prominent central bankers, finance ministers, academics, and financial market participants from around the world. The participants convene to discuss the economic issues, implications, and policy options pertaining to the symposium topic. The symposium proceedings include papers, commentary, and discussion. 

The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City was made aware that the Jackson Lake Lodge will be unable to open for the 2020 season. The Bank is considering the implications of this announcement for this year's Economic Symposium and will communicate additional details when they are available.
