UNC-CH Fed Challenge

The College Fed Challenge has been introduced to help students become more knowledgeable about the Fed and the decision making process used by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the Federal Reserve System's monetary-policy setting body. Research suggests that students acquire knowledge best through their active involvement in the learning experience. With that in mind, the College Fed Challenge asks economics and business students, represented by three to five-member teams, to undertake research, analyze data about current and near-term economic conditions and then decide upon a specific course for monetary policy. The teams then make presentations based upon their research and analysis and make interest rate recommendations before a panel of judges.
