During this program, Ron Wirtz from the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis will offer a short primer on the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, and its role in the economy. He will describe the current health and direction of the Minnesota economy using a variety of metrics, including gross domestic product, job growth, unemployment, hiring demand and labor supply measures. 

Ron Wirtz is a Regional Outreach Director for the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. Ron’s primary responsibilities involve tracking current business conditions across the six-state Ninth Federal Reserve District, which includes Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, northwest Wisconsin, Minnesota, the Dakotas and Montana. Ron tracks activity in employment and wages – which are central to the Federal Reserve’s dual mandate of promoting stable prices and maximum employment – along with construction and real estate sectors. Part of Ron’s work includes extensive outreach to business and community leaders, and he gives frequent speeches on Ninth District regional economies.
