The Mosbacher Institute for Trade, Economics, and Public Policy at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University will hold an online event in the series Conversations in Public Policy with Marc P. Giannoni, Senior Vice President and Director of Research for the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. Giannoni will discuss the economic challenges of a post-COVID world, such as its effects on inflation, supply chains, and labor markets.
“The Bush School and the Mosbacher Institute are pleased to host Mr. Giannoni,” said Raymond Robertson, Director of the Mosbacher Institute. “The COVID-19 crisis disrupted markets in an unprecedented way. Mr. Giannoni is uniquely qualified to provide especially valuable insights for a post-COVID-19 world.”
Giannoni joined the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas in September 2017. Previously, he was Research Economist and Assistant Vice President in the macroeconomic and monetary studies function of the New York Fed. He is a native of Switzerland and began his career as an economist with the Swiss National Bank in Zurich in 1992.
In 2000, Giannoni began working at the New York Fed as an economist before leaving to begin an academic career at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business in 2002. He rejoined the New York Fed in 2011 while continuing as an Adjunct Professor of Finance and Economics at Columbia. He holds BA and MA degrees in economics from the University of Geneva in Switzerland and MA and PhD degrees in economics from Princeton University.
Each event in the Conversations in Public Policy lecture series brings a prominent policymaker and a subject-matter expert together on stage for an informative public discussion of their common interests. The Mosbacher Institute endeavors to produce innovative policy research and top-quality education and training and is named for Robert Mosbacher Sr., who served as Secretary of Commerce under President George H. W. Bush from 1989 to 1992.
