Robert FORMAINI, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, USA
Thomas SIEMS, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, USA

Description:  During the 1990s some economists proposed that the American economy had entered a new era transformed by technology and rising productivity.  Today, amid the realties of stock market decompressions, rising unemployment, and sluggish growth, critics contend the 90s were at best an illusion built on "irrational exuberance" and outright fraud. What is the reality behind the New Economy claim, and is the New Economy argument now dead?  All conference participants welcome to participate.  If you’d like to join the panel please e-mail:  bob.formaini@dal.frb.org
