CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (July 3, 2023) – As inflation numbers improved and the economy looked to be slowing, the Federal Reserve held steady on interest rates at its June meeting, its first without an increase since February 2022. The labor market continues to defy expectations, however, and speeches by Federal Open Market Committee members suggest they may return to raising rates in July.

Join us for the Kenan Institute’s monthly virtual press briefing at 9 a.m. EDT this Friday, July 7, as Chief Economist Gerald Cohen discusses how the data that comes out over the next few weeks, including Friday morning’s monthly employment report, may influence the Fed’s decision. He will also answer questions from the audience.

Experts from the institute will appear on the briefing each month and offer commentary in their areas of specialization. The briefings occur on the morning that the employment report is released, usually the first Friday of each month.

You’re invited to join via Zoom (registration details below) and welcome to respond directly to this email to submit any questions you would like to be addressed.

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
When: July 7, 2023, 9 a.m. EDT (U.S. and Canada)
