Is The Fed’s 2% Inflation Goal Achievable?

Fed 2 Percent Inflation Goal

A strong job market continues to create challenges for the Fed to reach its 2% inflation goal. Inflation remains sticky and has even reaccelerated in certain parts of the economy, especially in a few service sectors. However, the unemployment rate may not be the key or the Fed’s focus.

In this video, Ross Bramwell discusses what the Fed needs to get inflation trending back down to its inflation target.
