How the Fed Has Navigated World Events
I’ve always been a little skeptical when people say, “it’s different this time,” but recent data suggests the Fed is approaching 2022’s inflation differently than other financial events in recent history.
We’ve faced some difficult economic periods since 1984. In each instance, the Fed’s reaction was to ease monetary conditions or hit the pause button with its strategy. But in 2022, with inflation reaching new highs in the U.S. and showing few signs of slowing in other parts of the world, the Fed is tightening by continuing to raise interest rates.
There’s no doubt that the Fed is managing through a difficult time, and tightening appears to be the appropriate response. Fed Chair Powell knows that few financial events can be as devastating as high inflation over time – especially for those living on a fixed income.
I remain optimistic that the Fed has a strategy to tame inflation, and I’m well aware that it will continue to impact the markets. In the meantime, if you have questions, please let me know. I’m always happy to hear from you.
