Fed’s Bowman: Jan inflation suggests inflation progress may be slower going forward

  • Latest jobs data continued to show a tight jobs market
  • Current policy stance appears appropriately calibrated
  • Baseline is for continued decline in inflation, but see a number of upside inflation risks to my outlook
  • Fiscal stimulus, tight jobs market might be keeping core services inflation elevated
  • Will remain cautious in approach to considering any mon pol stance change, especially given data revisions

Bowman is a hawk, so this is no surprise.
