Asset Price Inflation Is The Main Risk

Jerome Powell’s video message last week confirmed what market participants believed would be the outcome of a comprehensive review of the Fed’s strategies, tools and communications that was launched in November 2018.

Namely, the FOMC has adopted what it refers to as a flexible inflation targeting regime. In the future, the Fed will aim to achieve average annual inflation of 2% over a prescribed period.

“The COVID-19 pandemic continued to hang over the Japanese service sector in August, halting previous momentum towards recovery amid fragile customer demand,” said Andrew Harker, economics director at IHS Markit.

The headline index, which worsened for the first time since
