Abstract

The College Fed Challenge is a competition designed to learn about real-world economics. Teams of three to five students play the role of monetary policymakers by analyzing economic conditions and recommending a course for monetary policy. The competition consists of two parts. First, a presentation is given to the judges, who are New York Fed economists and staff who are experts on economics and monetary policy. Second, in a brief Q&A session, the judges test the group’s ability to think on their feet. Fed Challenge participants develop analytical skills, create effective presentations, and work as a team. These are valuable skills which will prepare them for success in their academic and professional careers.
