Summer: Fed’s Course Leads to Stagflation, Recession

“I believe the Fed has not internalized the magnitude of its errors over the past year, is operating with an inappropriate and dangerous framework, and needs to take far stronger action to support price stability than appears likely. … The Fed’s current policy trajectory is likely to lead to stagflation, with average unemployment and inflation both averaging over 5 percent over the next few years — and ultimately to a major recession.”

Larry Summers, who served as U.S. Treasury Secretary from 1999 to 2001.
