Press Call Today, 4PM ET: Economists React to Fed Chair Powell’s Testimony

July 14, 2021

In light of Consumer Price Index projections and in advance of Federal Reserve Chairman Jay Powell’s appearance before the House Financial Services, it’s important to understand that inflation fears are overstated and misrepresented. 

We cannot allow misguided fears about temporary, manageable inflation to lead to misguided monetary policies. As Dr. Rakeen Mabud, Groundwork’s Chief Economist and Managing Director of Policy and Research, told Bloomberg Business: “Inflation fears at the moment are really just a smokescreen for choosing not to invest.” 

Interested in learning more? Join Dr. Mabud and other leading economists for a press call TODAY at 4 p.m. ET. RSVP for the call HERE.
