Fed’s Fischer: ‘We are close to our targets’

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The U.S. central bank is within reach of its twin targets of maximum sustainable employment and an inflation rate of 2%, said Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer on Sunday, suggesting he is open to further interest rate hikes this year.

“We are close to our targets,” Fischer said in a speech prepared to a conference on the world economy sponsored by The Aspen Institute in Aspen, Colorado.

Fischer said the U.S. labor market has been “remarkably resilient” despite several shocks from overseas.

And the core measure of the personal consumption expenditure index — the Fed’s favorite measure of inflation — at 1.6% “is within hailing distance” of the central bank’s 2% target, Fischer added.

Although Fischer did not say it, the suggestion is that with the Fed so close to its goals, it no longer has to keep monetary policy so loose and can snug up interest rates.

Fischer is a member of Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen’s inner circle and his views are followed closely by investors. His remarks are similar to recent comments from other close Yellen allies, New York Fed President William Dudley and San Francisco Fed President John Williams, who said the economy could likely handle another rate hike.

The Fed raised rates last December but has been unwilling to push rates up again, given uncertainties facing the economy, such as China’s economic slowdown and the Brexit referendum.

In his speech, Fischer stressed the Fed can’t solve all the U.S.’s economic problems.

Congress and the executive branch must help to solve long-term issues like the recent slowdown in productivity growth, he said.

“The key to boosting productivity growth, and the long-run potential of the economy, is more likely to be found in effective fiscal and regulatory policies,” he said.
