Fed Bullard: Taper will get going this year

In an FT interview, St Louis Fed President James Bullard maintained the view that “the big picture is that the taper will get going this year and will end sometime by the first half of next year.”

The weak August NFP report didn’t alter his view on job market recovery. “There is plenty of demand for workers and there are more job openings than there are unemployed workers”, he said. “If we can get the workers matched up and bring the pandemic under better control, it certainly looks like we’ll have a very strong labour market going into next year.”

He also said there is “also a case” that inflation wont moderate into 2022, and may go higher, due to ” additional supply constraints coming from international sources now because of the Delta variant.”
