Fed’s Powell is taking part in a panel discussion, a Q&A, on the global economy
- at the IMF Spring meeting
- begins at 1600 GMT
Powell has been dovish over and over again in recent appearances. The Fed approach now is to base changes in policy on outcomes, not outlooks, and the outcome they are focused on right now is inflation sustainably, not transiently, above 2%.
Also speaking on Wednesday from the Fed are:
- 1500 GMT St Louis Fed head Bullard is discussing the US economy and monetary policy in a Q&A session
- 1800 GMT Minneapolis Fed head Kashkari discusses the economic outlook in a Q&A
