Episode 46 Jay Powell Whistles Past the Graveyard in Congress


Jay Powell again admitted the Federal Reserve was wrong on inflation, believing it to be “transitory” last year but realizing it is anything but transitory. He says he’s committed to fighting it, but with merely a .25% rate cut this month and no reduction in the Fed’s massive balance sheet.

But if the economy is as strong as he says it is, why not fight inflation harder?
