Powell will likely focus on short-term monetary policy in Wyoming, Allianz economist says
Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell may not focus on what’s best for him in his remarks from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, later this week, according to Mohamed El-Erian, Allianz chief economic advisor.
“What’s likely is that he’s probably going to talk about short-term monetary policy issues,” El-Erian said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.” “I don’t think that’s the best thing to do, because it is a very delicate situation right now.”
Still, El-Erian said the central bank leader could be helped given the “target-rich environment,” adding that there’s “a lot” he can talk about.
