Elmer Fed? US PCE Price Growth Hits 5.2%, Highest Since Mid-1983 (Taylor Rule Suggests Target Rate of 13.35%)

And this doesn’t include the inflation in prices caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Yet.

US Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) price index rose by 5.2% in January, the fastest rate since mid-1983.

With CPI inflation at 7.5% YoY, the Taylor Rule suggests a Fed Funds target rate of 13.35%, higher than the current rate of 0.25%. Overstimulated much??

Let’s see if The Fed actually goes hunting inflation.

Let’s see if inflation makes The Fed dance!
