Key quotes

  • Fed is just shy of achieving symmetrical inflation goal.
  • In the near-term the U.S. Economy looks good.
  • I do not worry too much about financial stability at this point.
  • There is no precedent for current trade policy disputes.
  • Higher tariffs in place for a long period of time would be bad for the U.S. Economy.
