Federal Reserve Williams the U.S. economy is in good shape, should gradually raise interest rates 否极泰来的意思

The Fed’s Williams: the U.S. economy is in good shape should be gradually Shengxi U.S. stock market center: exclusive national industry sector stocks, premarket after hours, ETF, real-time quotes Sina warrants stocks 7 Reuters news Beijing reported that the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President Williams (John Williams) on Tuesday called again should gradually shengxi. With the recent slowdown in employment growth in the United States and sluggish service performance, traders have expected the Federal Reserve to not raise interest rates this year. "Back to the path gradually Shengxi is justified, and sooner rather than later," Williams said in a speech. In his speech, he did not mention Tuesday’s data showing that the U.S. service industry index in August touched a minimum of six and a half years, and did not mention the non farm employment report released by the government on Friday, showing that the number of new jobs in August was less than expected. Williams pointed out that the economy is in good condition, and the unemployment rate is expected to fall to 4.5% in the next year, and inflation will reach the target level of 2% of the Federal Reserve in the next one or two years. But in the long run, Williams made it clear that he was far from satisfied with the Fed’s current monetary policy approach. He believes that, as the Federal Reserve and many other central banks are currently doing, low inflation as a policy target may not have much effect in the world today, because economic growth and interest rates will continue to be lower than the Great Recession. He said that setting low inflation targets would make the fed less buffer against future shocks. Williams believes that the Fed can increase the target of 2% inflation to 3% or even 4%, or completely abandon the inflation rate as the goal, instead of the nominal level of national economic output as the goal. He thinks it takes time to figure out what kind of approach is most effective in the face of future economic downturn, so the Fed needs to act quickly. "We don’t have much time," Williams said. Williams put forward the idea of changing the Fed’s monetary policy last month, when he began to more actively promote interest rates. Federal Reserve Chairman Yellen said last month that the Fed is not actively considering the change of strategy proposed by Williams. It is not clear how much support his proposal has made.

美联储威廉姆斯:美经济处于良好状态 应逐步升息 美股行情中心:独家提供全美股行业板块、盘前盘后、ETF、权证实时行情   新浪美股讯 北京时间7日路透报道,美国旧金山联邦储备银行总裁威廉姆斯(John Williams)周二再次呼吁应逐步升息。由于近期美国就业增长步伐放缓,且服务业表现迟滞,目前交易员已经预期美国联邦储备委员会(美联储)今年根本不会升息。   “回到逐步升息的路径是有道理的,而且宜早不宜迟,”威廉姆斯在一篇讲话稿中称。   他在讲话稿中并未提及周二公布的数据显示,美国8月服务业活动指数触及六年半最低,也未谈到上周五政府发布的非农就业报告显示8月新增就业岗位数量不及预期。   威廉姆斯指出,经济“处于良好状态”,并预期失业率在未来一年将降至4.5%,通胀率则会在未来一两年左右达到美联储2%的目标水平。   但长期而言,威廉姆斯明确表示,他对美联储目前的货币政策方法远远谈不上满意。   他认为,像美联储和其它许多央行目前所做的那样,以低通胀作为政策目标,在当今世界可能作用不大,因为经济成长和利率或将持续低于大衰退(Great Recession)之前。他表示,设定低通胀目标,使美联储在防范未来冲击时的缓冲余地过小。   威廉姆斯认为,美联储可以将2%通胀率目标提高至3%甚至4%,或者完全放弃以通胀率为目标,改以国民经济产出(national economic output)的名义水平作为目标。   他认为,需要时间来确定何种方式在面临未来经济低迷时最为有效,因此美联储有必要赶快行动。   “我们的时间不多,”威廉姆斯说。   威廉姆斯在上月首次提出改变美联储货币政策方针的设想,当时他还开始更加积极地提倡加息。   美联储主席耶伦上月表示,联储目前并没有在积极考虑威廉姆斯提议的策略转变问题。他的提议究竟获得多大支持,还并不清楚。(完)   (编译 徐文焰 郑茵 审校 龚芳 戴素萍)(路透中文网) 责任编辑:张玉洁 SF107相关的主题文章:
