Lael Brainard, Chair of the Fed's Committee on Financial Stability, says Climate Change Matters for Monetary Policy and Financial Stability.
So how does climate change fit into the work of the Federal Reserve? To support a strong economy and a stable financial system, the Federal Reserve needs to analyze and adapt to important changes to the economy and financial system. This is no less true for climate change than it was for globalization or the information technology revolution.
