Statement by Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome H. Powell on the passing of Alice Rivlin

For immediate release

Alice Rivlin, who served as Vice Chair of the Board of Governors from 1996 to 1999, made great and lasting contributions as a leader and economic policymaker and broke barriers as a woman in the economics profession. I valued our friendship and extend my deepest sympathy to her family.
