Carmen Reinhart, a professor of the International Financial Systems at Harvard Kennedy School discusses her life and economic experiences with Maria Hasenstab, senior media relations specialist at the St. Louis Fed. They cover a variety of topics from Reinhart’s childhood move from Cuba to the U.S., the male-dominated field of economics and how that impacts women, and how she analyzes economics almost like a detective would. As we continue through International Women’s Month, she leaves a motto for any women in the economic field: perseverance and consistency.
