John Williams quotes

Jun 01 2017

There is potential for upside occurrences in the economy. One big question mark is if there is big fiscal stimulus or other changes in the outlook that we see the economy is doing better than we thought.feedback

May 30 2017

My view still is that three rate hikes this year makes sense. Nothing has pushed me away from that. We should continue this gradual process of policy normalization in interest rates.feedback

May 05 2017

I haven't changed my views on the appropriate pace of policy.feedback

May 05 2017 - Unemployment

The risks of us getting to a situation where unemployment is well below a sustainable level for a number of years are growing. An economy that overheats for too long, if we let this go too far, it creates greater risks down the road.feedback

May 05 2017

I believe that a price-level framework merits very serious consideration for central banks including the Fed. Baked into its very design is a 'lower for longer' policy prescription in response to sustained low inflation.feedback

Apr 06 2017

As we do both of these, we're going to see a tightening of financial conditions happening in two different ways.feedback

Mar 29 2017

It's early days on the data but I don't see it as worrisome for a number of reasons. I talk to a lot of people both on the lending and the borrowing sides and I've not heard any accounts that it's somehow harder to get credit, or that the demand for credit has slowed a lot.feedback

Mar 29 2017

The public and private decision-makers who work in these realms have it within their toolkits to spark growth and innovation, if they so choose to invest in priorities like education, training, safer and healthy neighborhoods, and infrastructure.feedback

Mar 29 2017

What a difference four years makes. We're now very close to reaching the Fed's dual mandate goals of maximum employment and price stability. In fact, if you do the math, we are about as close to these goals as we've ever been. Unshackling the economy from these supply-side restraints is instead the purview of things like federal fiscal policy, state and local legislative actions, philanthropy, business investment, public-private partnerships, etc.feedback

Mar 01 2017

In my view, a rate increase is very much on the table for serious consideration at our March meeting.feedback

Jan 18 2017

When you let the economy run too hot for too long, policy then needs to at some point reverse course and it's very hard to engineer a soft landing.feedback

Jan 17 2017

Looking ahead, further gradual increases in the target fed funds rate will likely be appropriate to bring monetary policy back to a more normal setting consistent with an economy at full strength. If we wait too long to remove monetary accommodation, we hazard allowing imbalances to grow, requiring us to play catch-up, and not leaving much room to maneuver.feedback

Jan 17 2017

In arguing for gradual increases in interest rates over the next few years, I'm not aiming to stall the economic expansion. In fact, it's just the opposite: My aim is to keep it on a sound footing. I fear that if we allow the economy to overshoot this mark by too much, eventually we will need to reverse course to bring the economy back on track.feedback

Jan 05 2017

My view, in terms of the demographic and productivity trends that we've been seeing for the last decade or so is that growth is likely to be 1½ to 1¾ percent. If we can find ways to do lot more investment in our people, in technology, more broadly in infrastructure, I think we can shift that upwards. But right now, my view is that a lot of the fiscal stimulus that people have been talking about would have a relatively modest effect.feedback

Dec 21 2016 - Christmas

We offer a six-course menu in The Ritz Restaurant for Christmas day lunch, as well as a four-course menu for Christmas day dinner, Boxing Day lunch and dinner, which will all be fully booked.feedback

Dec 21 2016 - Christmas

At The Ritz, it's about the quality of the produce that we use and matching this to the right occasion and the expectations of our clients.feedback

Dec 21 2016 - Christmas

We use the finest ingredients and foods in the menus but it's also about the quality of the service.feedback

Dec 21 2016 - Christmas

Christmas at The Ritz is like nowhere else – it really has a special feeling.feedback

Nov 10 2016

We are not making promises to raise interest rates.feedback

Nov 10 2016

It makes sense, I would say, to ease off on the gas a bit. We do want to run a hot economy for a while (but) we dont want it to be too hot for too long.feedback

Nov 10 2016

Having that independence is very important.feedback

Oct 21 2016

It's just the opposite: My aim is to keep it on a sound footing so that it can be sustained for a long time.feedback

Sep 28 2016

I think she's just the right person to get the right balance going forward.feedback

Sep 28 2016

I know she fully understands the arguments on both sides.feedback

Sep 28 2016

An easy way to convince markets of something is by doing it.feedback

Sep 28 2016

It is getting harder and harder to justify interest rates being so incredibly low given where the U.S. economy is and where it is going. I would support an interest rate increase. I think that the economy can handle that. I don't think that would stall, slow or derail the economic expansion.feedback

Sep 28 2016

My worry is very much that if you try to, in a way, get greedy and say, Let's see how low this will go,' you set in motion a process that causes the economy to go in reverse. There are risks to pushing things too far.feedback

Aug 26 2016

It's not about trying to stop the economy from growing. We're going to keep this economy growing, we are going to run it hot.feedback

Aug 12 2016

As the economy gets closer to its goals, we can again pull our foot off the gas a bit and hopefully execute a nice, soft landing over the next couple of years.feedback

Jul 29 2016

It makes sense, assuming the data continue to support that, to raise rates again this year.feedback

Jun 10 2016

I am enormously grateful, as all composers are, to film, for giving us the broadest possible audience worldwide that any composer has ever enjoyed. Tomorrow morning when I'm back at work, I'll try to deserve all this.feedback

May 24 2016

Over the rest of the year two or maybe three rate increases, maybe one or two more (than that) next year so maybe three or four next year - I think that's still about right.feedback

Mar 29 2016

We're not quite where I'd like us to be, but recent developments have been very encouraging and add to my confidence that we're on course to reach our (inflation) goal.feedback

Mar 29 2016

Others' economic fates do not spell our own. My view is essentially, let's just stay on track. Let's not get sidelined by the noise and distraction commentary can sometimes cause.feedback

Mar 02 2016

I am not going to opine whether we should have one fewer (rate hike) or the same as before. It is really just the tactics, how many rate increases this year versus next year. It's not a fundamentally different view of the economy.feedback

Mar 02 2016

We are not very good as economists or forecasters at assessing risks.feedback

Jan 29 2016

Standard monetary policy strategy says a little less inflation, maybe a little less growth ... argue for just a smidgen slower process of normalizing rates.feedback

Jan 08 2016

I don't need to see anything more than what I see as baseline forecast.feedback

Jan 08 2016

This was the right move because the economic outlook is good.feedback

Jan 04 2016

In terms of those developments ricocheting into the U.S. economy, I think we have really really strong fundamentals, in terms of consumer spending, in terms of our economic trajectory, so right now at least this isn't a big concern for me.feedback

Jan 04 2016

Over the next couple of years, we are going to need significant monetary accommodation, a very gradual pace of rate increases, to keep our economy on this 2, 2.25 percent growth path, given the headwinds we are facing especially from abroad.feedback
