The Economic Club of New York (ECNY) will celebrate its 500th signature event on Wednesday, March 6, 2019. The guest of honor will be John Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, speaking on “The Economic Outlook: The ‘New Normal’ Is Now.” In the 112 years since its 1907 inception, ECNY has hosted hundreds of luminaries, from business executives to world leaders to sitting U.S. Presidents to top academics, for important discussions on the day’s most pressing topics. Williams will join an impressive list of speakers, which includes many of his current and former Federal Reserve colleagues.
