Janet Yellen Seeks Virtual Office Services for Federal Reserve Board

Virtual office services are perfect for businesses and institutions that don't require full time office space.

As you may know, Mary, we meet every six weeks - about eight times a year. We also need the conference room four times a year to present economic projections and provide additional context for our policy decisions.

A virtual office definitely makes sense for the Fed, Ms. Yellen - I can even offer you a discount if you give us advance notice of when you plan to hike interest rates!
