After a tumultuous 2022 and talk of an economic slowdown in 2023, Americans will have to navigate significant economic uncertainty in the coming year. At this Texas Business Hall of Fame Titan Talk, in partnership with the Baker Institute, Richard Fisher, the former president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, explored the challenges and opportunities facing the United States economy. As one of the most respected economic minds in the country, Fisher discussed a wide variety of economic issues — from the prospects for American economic growth to the impact of recent economic, demographic, social and political trends on the U.S. economy.
