Questions for Monetary Policy

James Bullard, president of the St. Louis Fed, says there are five questions for monetary policy:

The five questions

  • What are the chances of a hard landing in China?
  • Have U.S. financial market stress indicators worsened substantially?
  • Has the U.S. labor market returned to normal?
  • What will the headline inflation rate be once the effects of the oil price shock dissipate?
  •  Will the U.S. dollar continue to gain value against rival currencies?

I would add:

  • Will wage gains translate into inflation (or something along those lines)?

Anything else?
