On Wednesday the Lowy Institute hosted noted economist Professor Frederic Mishkin. You wouldn't say he was optimistic about America's economic predicament, but he at least believes it to be slightly less dire than the mess Europe is in.

Professor Mishkin is a former member of the Board of Governors of the US Federal Reserve and Executive Vice President and Director of Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. You can listen to his full address here, or to a short interview below.
