About Powell’s Speech And High Inflation…

Inflation Is The Big Issue
Peter Boockvar: 
I think the Powell speech was uneventful in the sense of telling us something new. He’s remaining noncommittal and flexible with what comes next, highlighted that they could hike again but not necessarily. He also talked about the tough part of their job now.

Leaving open the possibility of another rate increase, “We are prepared to raise rates further if appropriate.” But on the other hand, “Given how far we have come, at upcoming meetings we are in a position to proceed carefully as we assess the incoming data and the evolving outlook and risks.”

And even if they don’t hike again, they “intend to hold policy at a restrictive level until we are confident that inflation is moving sustainably down toward our objective.” I think the important word here is ‘sustainably.’ As I’ve said before, there is one thing to see disinflation but there is a completely other thing to have inflation stay down.

He then broke down the composition of inflation, talked about the economy (said “the housing sector is showing signs of picking back up” but nothing is picking up when it comes to activity with existing homes and in fact, continues to weaken) and discussed the labor market. With the labor market, he acknowledged that “payroll job growth has slowed significantly. Total hours worked has been flat over the past six months, and the average workweek has declined to the lower end of its pre-pandemic range, reflecting a gradual normalization in labor market conditions.” This in turn “has eased wage pressures.”…

In maybe a veiled response to Jason Furman and Paul Krugman who from their academic seats this week are saying the Fed should raise their inflation (cost of living) target to 3% from 2%, Powell said “Two percent is and will remain our inflation target.” Furman and Krugman should go to a Dollar Tree and explain to the customers there why a 3% rise in their cost of living is better than 2%.

You’ve heard me say the r*, aka the real rate, is a complete guesstimate, spit out by some econometric model at the Fed. Powell in his speech agreed with me, saying “we cannot identify with certainty the neutral rate of interest, and thus there is always uncertainty about the precise level of monetary policy restraint.”

I give credit here to Powell in his humility of the Fed’s job from here, “we are navigating by the stars under cloudy skies.” To this and the uncertainties that the economy brings, “complicate our task of balancing the risk of tightening monetary policy too much against the risk of tightening too little. Doing too little could allow above target inflation to become entrenched and ultimately require monetary policy to wring more persistent inflation from the economy at a high cost to employment. Doing too much could also do unnecessary harm to the economy.” They must appreciate the lags, and Powell said they do, and which only intensify from here as more and more that have debt coming due get ensnared by much higher rates.

The speech really isn’t changing much in terms of market rate expectations. The odds for September fell to 14% from 16% and are about 50/50 for one more by yr end, similar to what was seen just prior to the speech. We have to get off now this obsession on whether they will hike again or not and turn the attention to how long they will stay tight for and how much more does the balance sheet have to shrink.
