Fed Vice Chair Richard Clarida also reinforced New York Fed President John Williams’ dovish comments. Clarida told Fox Business Network that “you don’t need to wait until things get so bad to have a dramatic series of rate cuts.” And, “you don’t want to wait until data turns decisively if you can afford to.”

Clarida reiterated that the US economy is “in a good place”. But “we’ve had mixed data” and “disinflationary pressures, if anything, are more intense than I thought six weeks ago.” He added, “we need to make a decision based on where we think the economy may be heading and, importantly, where the risks to the economy are lined up.”
