International Finance 

The Division of International Finance is responsible for basic research, policy analysis, and reporting in the areas of foreign economic activity, U.S. external trade and capital flows, and developments in international financial markets and institutions. Research responsibilities are shared by staff economists in the seven sections listed below as well as by the officers in the Program Direction group.

Trade and Quantitative Studies

The Trade and Quantitative Studies section produces policy analysis, forecasts, and research on the U.S. international trade and current accounts and the interdependence of the U.S. economy and foreign economies. Much of this work is centered around quantitative models of the U.S. international sector and on the Board's global econometric model, which embodies both adaptive and forward-looking expectations.
