  • We cannot cut immigration and also grow GDP and the workforce
  • Does not see inflation running away even though we will see wage pressures
  • Expects 3 rate hikes this year,more next year
  • 10 year yield of 2.85% puts a limit on how high they can raise rates

  • Does not want to create an inversion in the yield curve.
  • Outyear sluggish growth will affect yield curve
  • US needs of China negotiations, but we should work it out
