What Has Happened to the Yield Curve Since Liftoff?

Monday, August 20, 2018

What has happened with the yield curve since the Federal Reserve started raising its policy rate from near zero in December 2015 (so-called liftoff)?

In this video, taken from a Dialogue with the Fed presentation on May 22, St. Louis Fed Director of Research Chris Waller discusses how the yield curve has flattened since liftoff. He also discusses reasons why rates would potentially be pushed up faster at the short end, even with the risk of inverting the yield curve.
