In a move especially pivotal given today’s elevated inflation as the economy is resuscitated out of the pandemic, President Joe Biden announced yesterday morning (November 22nd) that he would nominate the incumbent Jerome Powell for another term as Chair of the Federal Reserve. Additionally, Biden nominated Lael Brainard as Vice Chair. Both Powell and Brainard had been under consideration for the Chair role in uncharacteristically lengthy deliberations on the part of Biden, who had interviewed both for the position on November 4th.
This newsletter provides background on Powell and Brainard, covers the market reaction to Biden’s announcement, and analyzes expectations for interest rates and inflation in the coming years.
