Ethan Harris quotes

Dec 09 2016 - American politics

From the action in the stock market, the equity market is worried about a Trump victory, about the uncertainty of policy under Trump. Normally the equity market responds positively to a Republican doing well in the election. In this election, I think the dominant story is about uncertainty after the election.feedback

Nov 03 2016 - Unemployment

That's kind of like a Goldilocks number right now. It looks like the labor force participation rate has finally turned higher. If we can mark time with an unemployment rate of 5 percent and decent job growth for a while, it's the best thing that could happen to this economy. It's one of the better stories in the economy right now.feedback

Nov 03 2016

People are coming back to work. Wages are starting to pick up. I think the labor market is going to confirm it's one of the bright spots right now.feedback

Oct 18 2016 - Protectionism

The most recent shock was Brexit and the most important potential global shock is a drift towards trade protectionism in the U.S., particularly if the Presidential election favors Republican candidate Donald Trump.feedback

Sep 23 2016

One of our key themes for both the US and global economy is that fiscal policy is shifting from austerity to modest stimulus.feedback

The elephant in the room they can't discuss is [the election], and if the elephant could stop the Fed, for no political reasons, but because the election increases volatility in the market and hurts business confidence. One of the reasons to wait is to find out do we get uncertainty in the market about future economic policy and does that create a correction in the equity market and slow down business engagement?feedback

I think that this was a place holder meeting. Her body language was pretty much like this was a close call. We just need to gather a little more evidence.' You could tell she was on the defensive here. There is a growing group of dissenters on the committee so I think December is quite likely.feedback

Jul 08 2016

The spillovers from Brexit are pretty small. The U.S. economy kind of just plods its way through one (crisis) after another.feedback

Jun 27 2016

Concern over another euro area crisis could slow U.S. growth in the next couple of quarters through weak financial markets and declining business and consumer confidence. This could be reinforced by concern about the U.S. presidential election.feedback

Jan 13 2016

The Chinese equity market is kind of on its own little path right now, divorced from the rest of the world.feedback

Jan 13 2016

I think that the market is overwhelmed with too many blindside hits. You had geopolitical concerns around the Middle East and North Korea, you had weakness in the equity market and currency market in China, you had a little bit of soft data, and if you put it all together it was just a little bit too much for the equity market.feedback
