A new Twitter account aimed at increasing access to the research done by the more than 400 economists and other research staff at the Federal Reserve Board was launched Wednesday.
The Fed, in its announcement, said the new account – @FedResearch – will highlight research published in the board’s working papers and notes series, other staff articles, and conferences.
Staff members at the Board conduct research on a wide variety of topics in economics and finance. Some of these products include the Finance and Economics Discussion Series, International Finance Discussion Papers, and FEDS Notes series. The Fed says the papers and notes reflect the views of the individual authors and do not communicate policy positions of the board or the Federal Reserve System.
