U.S. could see ‘immaculate disinflation,’ Yardeni says
The U.S. could see disinflation without triggering a broad recession, according to Ed Yardeni, president of Yardeni Research.
Yardeni said the U.S. is shaping up to see a rolling recession, which is when different sectors see recessionary periods at different points. The Federal Reserve, which has its next policy meeting this week, has been trying for the past several months to bring down inflation without tipping the economy into a recessionary period.
“Generally speaking, Fed watchers like to criticize the Fed and suggest that they’re always wrong about their forecast and what they are doing,” he said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “But I think they’re actually getting it right this time. And I think we may very well have immaculate disinflation, where inflation comes down without an economy-wide recession.”
