commentary 02/23/15

The tug-of-war between the doves and the hawks on the Federal Reserve’s policy setting committee showed no signs of abating at the January 26-27 meeting. According to the just-released minutes of that meeting, both sides presented their case regarding when it would be appropriate to start raising interest rates. For the most part, there was nothing particularly new about these arguments. The hawks contend that waiting too long raises the risk of stoking inflation and sets the stage for market instability, as the Fed would then have to push interest rates up more sharply than otherwise. The doves, of course, maintain just the opposite set of concerns.
