St. Louis Fed President James Bullard

July 17, 2014

“Fed Goals and the Policy Stance”

St. Louis Fed President James Bullard discussed the FOMC's macroeconomic goals and the stance of monetary policy during a Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce event. He noted that the macroeconomic goals are close to being met; however, the monetary policy settings are far from normal. While this mismatch is not currently causing macroeconomic problems, President Bullard said it takes a long time to normalize policy and the mismatch may cause problems in the years ahead as the economy continues to expand.
