Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: Central Banks

Williams is the president of the New York Fed. As such he has a permanent voting seat on the FOMC each year. 

Comments to media following his earlier speech:

More:

  •  says the economy is on a very good trajectory but we still have a long ways to go
  • Fed's new framework is about anchoring inflation expectations at the right level
  • says if actual inflation and inflation expectations don't align the Fed will weigh various factors and make a judgment
  • Fed's monthly asset purchases of treasury and mortgage securities are about fostering accommodative financial conditions broadly, not just in housing market
  • Fed has the tools to control short-term rates such as adjusting ioer or the rate on overnight reverse repo
  • says adjustments to administered rates would not be a change in monetary policy

And that's how I lost my tie!
