Bullard Discusses Inflation, Labor Markets, Forward Guidance with Bloomberg
November 20, 2013
If the FOMC is going to change its forward guidance at all, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said his preference would be to add an inflation floor. This would be a promise to keep rates low as long as inflation was below some level—for instance, 1.5 percent, which would make it symmetric with the threshold on the high side of the inflation target. Bullard's comments were during Bloomberg's "The Year Ahead: 2014" conference.
