The Federal Reserve’s next moves are on the minds of business leaders everywhere. Some experts warn of a recession, others hold out hope for a “soft landing,” and there’s plenty of data to support both sides of the argument. For many Fed watchers, that can make it difficult to understand the Fed’s thinking.
To cut through the noise, Bryan DeAngelis hosts three experts on the Federal Reserve for this episode of What’s at Stake. John Fagan and Brendan Walsh, co-founders of Markets Policy Partners and Macrocast co-hosts, and Brai Odion-Esene, founder of SW4 Insights, join the show.
The group explains why we’re living through a uniquely challenging time for the Federal Reserve, as it tries to balance its competing mandates of reducing inflation and maintaining employment. They discuss which indicators influence the Fed’s agenda the most and whether the Fed’s preferred inflation metrics truly reflect Americans’ experience.
