Christopher Waller's Position: Navigating Economic Strength with Precision, The Fed's Critical Approach

Federal Reserve Governor Christopher Waller said Tuesday that he sees no reason for the Fed to move as quickly or cut as sharply as it has in the past. He opined that these should be done in a methodical manner. Coupled with a strong U.S. jobs report, robust retail sales data in December (core sales rose 0.8% on the month) and the lowest initial jobless claims data since September 2022 (187,000), suggest that economic growth is too robust to allow the Fed to begin easing policy in March, given the risk of higher inflation.
