Janet Yellen is one of the guests of honor at the New York university’s 182nd commencement. She will also be receiving an honorary degree.
Given the proximity to the FOMC minutes and the nature of the event I wouldn’t think we are going to be getting any big market busting comments coming out. She’s reading from prepared text and is not running a Q&A.
Being a university event we’ll no doubt be hearing about the importance of the younger generation and how important education is blah blah blah. I doubt she’ll be mentioning the level of debt students will be saddled with when the role out of education.
The even is running right now and you can catch it, and Yellen’s slot live here.
She’s all set to rock and roll.
Yellen: Locked and loaded
