Feds Waller speaks on CNBC
- inflation is well above the 2% target
- if we get 800,000 2 million jobs in the next two months we will have regained 85% of the jobs lost. This represents significant progress
- could make an announcement at the taper in september
- if the report next to jobs is as strong as the last one, it can be reduced until September; otherwise, you may need to push it
- the job market should really take off from August, September
- i don’t think the Delta variant will have a big impact directly in the US
- even worse increase in cases, the US economy went very well
- the Delta variant will not divert the US economy
- expects inflation to cool by the end of the year
- There’s an upside risk to inflation, but that’s not really their basic point of view
- We all believe that inflation will be canceled in October-November
- Inflation expectations are well anchored
- We should make a quick and rapid reduction so that the Fed is in a position to raise rates in 2022 if necessary.
- One can easily imagine if the next report of two jobs reaches 800,000 or one million could be reduced in October
- There’s no reason you want to go slow on the taper
- I don’t see the exact moment, the speed of the taper reduction has a big impact on the financial markets
- would be in favor of reducing MBS purchases faster than haciendas
In general terms, governors have been more impoverished while Hawks have been among the presidents of regional banks. Waller’s most baffling comments move away from this widespread trend. His comments are more in line with the Fed’s Bullard.
Waller is governor, which means he has a vote on the FOMC political board every year. Fed Bullard is not a voting member in 2021, but will be a voting member in January 2022.
