St. Louis Fed President James Bullard shared his views on the aftermath of the U.S. election in an interview on “Bloomberg Daybreak: Americas” conducted at the Frankfurt European Banking Congress. He talked about the potential impact of proposed legislative action on the U.S. economy. He also discussed what is driving the low real (inflation-adjusted) returns on short-term government debt and indicated he did not see on the horizon any abrupt change from the current low-real-interest-rate regime. He said that the Fed should make monetary policy appropriately for that regime.
