Fed’s Barkin: US economy is ‘remarkably healthy’

  • Whether more is needed from the Fed remains to be seen
  • We are making real progress on inflation
  • The job isn’t done, inflation remains too high
  • Not yet convinced inflation on a smooth glide path to 2%
  • Weill need economic slowing to beat inflation
  • Any downturn will be less severe than past recessions

There’s a clear message here: The economy needs to slow down or the Fed will hike more (or at least keep rates higher than the market is pricing).
