Summers: Can’t Blame Inflation on Pandemic, War, or Gouging, It’s about ‘Managing the Level of Demand’

On Friday’s broadcast of ABC’s “GMA3,” economist, Harvard Professor, Director of the National Economic Council under President Barack Obama, and Treasury Secretary under President Bill Clinton Larry Summers called on the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates and signal that further interest rate increases are coming and argued that the Federal Reserve can’t blame inflation on the coronavirus pandemic or the war in Ukraine, and the Biden administration can’t blame corporate cupidity for inflation because, at its core, the issue is about “managing the caliber of authoritative ordinance in the economy.”

Summers verbally expressed, “I cerebrate they require to raise interest rates. I cerebrate they require to signal that they’re going to do more raising of interest rates. “They” need to signal that inflation is their top priority. And they require to apperceive that they should have been peregrinating to tighten policy much sooner than they have. The Fed can’t incriminate this on the pandemic or the war, and the administration can’t incriminate this on corporate cupidity. This is, fundamentally, about the very delicate task of managing the caliber of authoritative ordinance in the economy.”

Summers additionally verbally expressed that while he believes pacifying the war in Ukraine will be auxiliary for the economy, there will be higher calibers of inflation over the next year or two. Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
