June FOMC meeting: “Transitory” or “sticky” inflation? That is the question for the Fed

Fed officials assert the recent surge in inflation will be transitory, but are they being “dangerously complacent” as Larry Summers affirms? Much will depend on how long it takes to resolve supply imbalances in the goods and labor markets. Vice Chairman Clarida sounding a bit more concerned said officials will be highly “attuned and attentive” to incoming economic data. The June FOMC meeting will offer a critical assessment of the evolving economic dynamics measured against the Fed’s new Flexible Average Inflation Target (FAIT) framework.
