Watch Fed Chairman Jerome Powell speak live at the IMF debate

[The stream is slated to start at 1 p.m. ET. Please refresh the page if you do not see a player above at that time.]

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell speaks Thursday in a panel presented by the International Monetary Fund. CNBC’s Sara Eisen will moderate the speech.

The event is part of the IMF’s Debate on the Global Economy. Participants will also include the President of the European Central Bank, Christine Lagarde, along with representatives from the IMF, Indonesia and Barbados.

With inflation at the height of 40 years, rising prices are seen as the biggest danger to economic growth in the pandemic. Like other global central banks, the Powell Fed is expected to tighten monetary policy significantly this year with a series of rate hikes and a reduction in the asset portfolio.

Other Fed officials this week mostly said they want to fight inflation without going so far as to derail the recovery. Markets expect a series of rate hikes and a reduction in assets at a rate that could eventually reach $ 95 billion a month.
