Good News! Flexible Price Inflation Cools To … 20%, Export Prices Cool To 18% YoY As Jerome “Slowhand” Powell Reappointed As Fed Chairman (Taylor Rule Suggests Fed Rate Of 13.89%)

by confoundedinterest17

The US Senate yesterday confirmed the reappointment of Jerome “Slowhand” Powell as Federal Reserve Chairman.

The good news? Atlanta Fed’s Flexible CPI YoY cooled to 20% in April. The bad news? Flexible prices are still growing at 20% while wages are growing at 5.5% YoY.

On the export front, export prices are cooling and were at 18% YoY in April, down slightly from March. Import prices cooled to 12% YoY as The Federal Reserve has slowed asset purchases.

I would have preferred President Biden appoint a serious Federal Reserve Chairman liked Stanford University’s John Taylor (of Taylor Rule fame). In his honor, here is the Mankin version of the Taylor Rule which calls for a Fed Funds Target Rate of 13.89% while the current Fed Funds Target Rate under Powell and the Gang is … 1%.

Call it the Powell Boogie. At a very slow speed.

Powell is indeed “Slowhand.”
