Howard J. Howe, PhD.
Dr. Howe retired from the Integrated Policy Analysis Group of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in May 2016. An assistant vice president, he was responsible for the Central Banking Seminar and offsite initiatives with other central banks. Howard joined the Bank in 1990 as a senior economist in the International Research Department. He served as the Bank’s corporate secretary in 1996. Prior to joining the Bank, Howard was an economist on the staff of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, a vice president at Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates, and a vice president at J.P. Morgan and Co. He holds a B.S. in engineering from Drexel University, a Master of Public Affairs from Princeton University, and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Pennsylvania.
Howard Howe will share his experiences as viewed from the New York Federal Reserve Bank where he served as a senior executive. This is his premise: Supply disruptions during the COVD-19 pandemic brought renewed attention to US economic vulnerabilities. And, the Biden administration has proposed several initiatives aimed at building resilient supply chains and, further, revitalizing American manufacturing. To better understand the prospects for adoption and success of these proposals, it is useful to review past US experiences with industrial policies. His talk was recently presented to fellow residents in Newton Sq., PA.
