Weekend – Fed’s Kashkari says Fed watching U.S.-China spat

Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis President Neel Kashkari in an interview with Fox on Saturday.

  • he’s “sympathetic” to the need to press China to engage in fair trade
  • it’s too soon to assess the full impact of the U.S.-China trade spat on the economy
  • “We should all be paying attention” to the tariff threats being exchanged, given the large range of possible outcomes
  • “This could be a lot of chest pounding” and not lead to a real impact on the economy, or “it could lead to a trade war”
  • The end result may also be something in the middle

“We should all be paying attention” sounds like good advice to me. 

Playing with the dogs is probably what Mr. K would prefer on the weekend rather than media interviews.
