The Midwest Economy in an Interdependent World Market
Last Updated: 03/13/97

An examination of the global linkages between an expanding world economy and the midwestern United States economy was the focal point of a workshop held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago on September 18, 1996. The workshop was the sixth in a series held in conjunction with the economic research department’s yearlong project, “Assessing the Midwest Economy.” This Chicago Fed Letter draws on ideas discussed at that workshop, focusing on the Midwest’s role in an increasingly interdependent world market.
