There's nothing so far on the outlook for monetary policy. Brainard has been nominated for Clarida's position, so his term at the Fed will end in January.

He's right that a crisis was likely averted during the pandemic but that's asking the wrong question. The issues is: Why did a pandemic nearly cause a financial crisis? Why is the system so fragile that it needs the Fed to perform unlimited bond buying to save it.
