Yellen spoke at the Atlantic Council on April 13, 2022, on the way forward for the global economy in the wake of Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine.

The global economy is facing significant headwinds in 2022 and U.S. leadership remains vital for the stability of the international financial system. On sanctions and beyond, international cooperation has never been more critical. Secretary Yellen shared the Biden Administration’s plan to build a more resilient and inclusive U.S. and global economy in the years ahead.
