The Associated Press
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen is expected at Harvard to participate in a "conversation" about interest rates.
Yellen is one of the featured speakers at Harvard's Radcliffe Day, an event that also will feature Fed predecessor and Harvard alumnus Ben Bernanke.
Yellen is scheduled to chat about interest rates with Gregory Mankiw, a Harvard economics professor. Separately, Bernanke will speak about the American economy.
Harvard says it will present Yellen with the Radcliffe Medal during Friday's events. The award is presented each year to an individual who has had a "transformative" impact on society.
