Must reads

Yesterday, the Fed rate-setting committee said it was “closely monitoring global economic and financial developments” and is “assessing their implications for the labor market and inflation.” Absent from their policy statement this time around, however, was an assertion that they were confident that inflation would rise over the medium term, based on the strength of the labor market. (AB, WSJ)
