The text of Brainard's testimony was released earlier, key headlines:
And, full text is here:
- Digital Assets and the Future of Finance: Examining the Benefits and Risks of a U.S. Central Bank Digital Currency
Brainard will be appearing before the US Congress' Committee on Financial Services, U.S. House of Representatives, Washington, D.C.
- at midday Washington time, which is 1600 GMT
As far as I can tell Brainard is the only Fed official speaking publicly Thursday. Sometimes others do pop up unannounced though.
