Boston Fed released its 2011 annual report recently..
It has three short articles/case studies on how it tries to stay connected to the common man etc. They call it Stories of Connecting:
Every day, the people of the Boston Fed connect with their world and their region. From identifying trends in data to encouraging collaboration among key populations, Boston Fed employees bring unique backgrounds and talents to their work to better the economic conditions for all in our region and nation.
Here, we share three stories of those connections.
The three connections are:
- Cash During Catastrophe: Hurricane Irene tore through Vermont on August 28, 2011. The story shows how Boston Fed acted to provide currency notes to the region as most currency in banks was washed away…Really interesting to read..
- An Empathy Initiative: Shows how Ana Patricia Muñoz, a Senior Policy Analyst, connected with the Latino community using her common language skills and understanding of the community….interesting to see how much knowing the local language matters..
- Beyond Monetary Policy: How Fed used mon pol to manage the falling growth and sentiment..this is pretty general stuff..
