  • The Fed wants 2.0 percent inflation longer term so every Fed member forecast precisely 2.0 percent inflation despite the fact the Fed missed projections for a decade.
  • I really don’t know where inflation will be in 2022 or 2023 or longer term and neither do they. There are too many moving parts with Russia, the mid-term elections, Biden’s energy policy and heaven help us if the Democrats manage to hold the House while adding even 1 seat to the Senate.
