fbpx Surveillance: Hard Numbers With Fed's Clarida - Kenneth Rogoff | Harvard Kennedy School

Excerpt

April 9, 2021, Audio: "Richard Clarida, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman, policy makers are looking for “hard numbers” on whether they’re reaching their goals on price stability and employment before adjusting interest rates. Kenneth Rogoff, Harvard University Professor of Economics & Public Policy, says a rise in interest rates at this point in the global pandemic recovery would “turn the world upside down.” Angus Deaton, Nobel Prize-Winning Economist and Princeton University Professor of Economics & International Affairs Emeritus, says the pandemic has exacerbated economic inequality. Anthony Crescenzi, PIMCO Market Strategist, Portfolio Manager & Member of the Firm's Investment Committee, sees value in the front end of the yield curve."
