Chicago Fed cancels Oct conference on asset prices

US - The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago said yesterday, Tuesday 18 September, it had cancelled a conference on asset price bubbles that was co-sponsored by the World Bank.

The conference had been scheduled to take place in Chicago from 4 to 6 October.

The Chicago Fed said the decision was made in light of the attacks last week in New York and in Washington, D.C., and the subsequent cancellation of the meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in Washington, D.C.
