  • US is not heading to sustainable place on deficit
  • Uncertainty more challenging for the economy
  • Direct impacts from tariffs right now is not significant
  • Fed very-much focused on hitting its inflation target
  • Normalizing rates not aimed at restraining economy
There's nothing particularly notable here but he's kinda upbeat compared to some of his downtrodden colleagues.
