The Fed: Fed’s Powell says a ‘softish landing’ for U.S. economy is plausible


Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Tuesday stressed his resolve to curb inflation but said the central bank could achieve a “softish landing” for the U.S. economy rather than a severe downturn.

“There are a number of plausible paths to having.. a softish landing,” Powell said, during a moderated discussion at a Wall Street Journal event.

Powell said a softish landing was like a bumpier aircraft descent that all frequent fliers have experienced.

Powell said “there could be some pain” for Americans as the Fed moves resolutely to bring down inflation.
