Low Inflation Haunts the Fed: Here's 2 days ago   05:36

Wall Street Journal
Inflation is among the most powerful forces in financial markets. It dictates the supply of money in the economy, and changes interest rates, which are the cost of borrowing money. Here's how it works, and how the Fed works to regulate it.

This inflation and economy thing hurts my mind and pocket 😣

If the 2% inflation target is just a safety net so it doesn’t dip below zero... why would the fed care if it was trending below 2% in the past. As long as it stayed above zero.
They want an excuse to increase inflation and inflate away the debt
George McGovern
Devaluation of currency = inflation

As an argentinean, I find this explainer too condescending. I mean, is like explaining fundamental money economics to a 3yo but by the wsj.
Edit: we had 50 percent inflation this year. Inflation is like our specialty 🤣

Propaganda at its finest. In case the idiots over at wsj didnt know, you cant inflate a price. Prices go up or they go down. What actually inflates is the money supply. You can have inflation and falling prices at the same time. Theyve just changed the meaning over time to brainwash the american public into allowing far greater inflation than in the past. And that chart showing inflation rates over time js also propaganda. The inflation ruler has changed over time to understate inflation so these idiots are comparing apples to oranges

If the average consumer or business person operated like the fed they wouldnt have a business, or home. Whats the word? Unsustainable. When debt reaches 200% of gdb thats when hyper inflation occurs. And yeah you can keep hoping gdp goes up. All the while youre still shoveling debt on top of a mountain of debt. But what happens when the year comes that gdp plummets?

No mention that deflation makes it harder to pay off debts. Thankfully America is debt free so this is not a problem.

So why is 2% the right amount of inflation? And why is negative real interest rate preferable to negative inflation?

Inflation is the change in the ratio between currency/goods&services. Period. This is obfuscated by much of the newly created currency being held as excess reserves at the Fed and not participating in the real economy. Inflation is theft by dilution of purchasing power.
Joseph Higgins
Down with the Fed and back with the gold standard.

This does have an endpoint,I think they always know it did, but the bottom 30 cannot catch up with the inflation rate meaning they have no possible way of affording anyting such as food water housing, the real possibility that It could be about 20 years away but will see the effects in the next 5 years, you well know when a cheeseburger at McDonalds cost 15 to $20 in the next 5 years

Not low inflation, FED needs more criminal activity, ponzi scheme
Craig Buckley
The 70s had high inflation because of high oil prices not high wages
Patrick O'Donnell
Everything that has been done to better society economically through Capitalism and what have you the last 75 years has been done for the sole benefit of baby boomers and baby boomers only. They are ruining life for everyone else and we need a great many to die off like right now. If all of them live to 90+ years of age, we will all suffer. Not the previous generations before them nor any after them will have ever gone through life experiencing more affluence and comfort anf ease of life. They got to live in the best time in society and strip away all of the resources from it to benefit themselves. Most selfish self serving generation in our world's history.

I think we should go to treasury notes, having inflation rate at 1% yearly, instead of the government buying banknotes with bonds, the Federal reserve has to buy treasury notes with bonds but a flat rate of 1%. Then the Federal reserve will sell those Treasury notes at a 2% flat rate. The government cannot print the treasury notes to go straight to the the budget it has goes through the Federal reserve into the market before it goes into the coffers of the federal government.

Conditions are constantly changing. Much of the world is already experiencing recession. The US is not in recession due to the current strength of its economy largely due to deregulation and corporate tax cuts. Very difficult to do if you are a nation restrained by government control and heavy tax burdens.

The FED doesnt make money it makes currency. And causes the most problems. Get some facts that arent from government text books or government indoctinated "economists"
