Real Washington – How the Fed Prevented Economic Disaster With Nick Timiraos, Chief Economics Correspondent for The Wall Street Journal

Nick Timiraos, chief economics correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, covers the Federal Reserve and U.S. economic policy and is the author of Trillion Dollar Triage: How Jay Powell and the Fed Battled a President and a Pandemic—and Prevented Economic Disaster. He speaks with hosts Richard Levick of LEVICK and Michael Zeldin, of That Said with Michael Zeldin on CommPRO. Nick takes you behind the scenes of the largest, swiftest U.S. economic policy response since World War II. He goes inside the Federal Reserve, one of the country’s most important and least understood institutions, to chronicle how Jay Powell unleashed an unprecedented monetary barrage to keep the economy on life support and how they are working to nurture a recovery without unleashing an inflation-fueling, bubble-blowing money bomb.
