Wall Street Journal report on an interview with Eric Rosengren, Boston Fed President

  • Sees "some reasonable risk" that the unemployment rate drops below 4% in the next two years
  • "In my own view, that would not be sustainable"
  • "I do think the market has appropriately started to say, 'Gee, this seems to be about the right time'" to announce the wind-down of the balance sheet, said Mr. Rosengren ... With the Fed's benchmark short-term interest rate well away from near zero, "there's no reason to have that extraordinary accommodation coming from the balance sheet any longer"
