The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has named vice president and economist Carlos Garriga as its new director of research. Garriga, a noted researcher in the area of macroeconomics, housing, monetary economics, asset pricing, and public economics, will also serve as a senior vice president on the St. Louis Fed's Management Committee. He will succeed Chris Waller, who was recently confirmed by the U.S. Senate as a governor of the Federal Reserve Board. Garriga's appointment will become effective Jan. 1 (or upon Waller's swearing-in as a Federal Reserve governor if it occurs after that date).
