If you’ve taken macroeconomics and would like to get involved in figuring out what the Fed is up to while earning one to two credits, join the Carthage Fed Challenge Team this fall.

Students work during September and October modeling the Federal Open Market Committee, one of the most influential bodies in the world. They analyze economic and financial conditions and formulate a monetary policy recommendation, which they then present to the Chicago Fed. Participating in the Challenge hones students’ research, presentation, and critical-thinking skills.

If you’re interested in joining, email Professor Cassie Lau at
