My one-hundred-and-forty-eighth YouTube video “Ouch! The Fed Gets Honest About Inflation” went up today.
In front of the Senate Finance Committee today, Fed chair Jerome Powell said that the Fed has all the tools it needs to fight inflation–except, he admitted, that nothing it does to raise interest rates will lower the price of gasoline or food. Those prices don’t figure into the core inflation rate the Fed watches, but they are very real to consumers. More money spent on food and fuel means less money available for everything else.
