  • Trump and allies draw up plan to erode Fed’s independence, WSJ reports | MSNBC
    According to a new Wall Street Journal report, Trump and his allies have drafted plans to limit the Federal Reserve’s independence and align the central bank with the administration's interests if the former president wins a second term. Diane Swonk, Chief Economist at KPMG, joins Ali Velshi to discuss the significance of the President asserting more control over the Federal Reserve, how Trump could reshape the banks to suit his interests, and the importance of the Fed’s independence given the current interest rates and inflation.

  • Fed Resets Clock on Cuts and Questions If Rates Are High Enough | Bloomberg
    A string of disappointing inflation data has forced the Federal Reserve to reset the clock on its first interest-rate cut and re-evaluate the trajectory of price growth. Chair Jerome Powell cemented that message this week when he said it’s likely going to take “longer than expected” to gain the confidence needed to lower rates, dashing hopes for more than two cuts in 2024. Some worry there may be none at all. “This is confirmation that the Fed’s willing to wait it out,” said Diane Swonk, chief economist at KPMG. “There’s concern of how little it took to stimulate the economy, that there’s still a lot of demand.”

  • U.S. Job Growth Jumped in March | Inc.
    "We still have quite a healthy labor market," says Yelena Maleyev, an economist at KPMG. And this still-strong job growth persists even despite historically high interest rates, she notes, which remain at a 23-year peak. "Workers have jobs, low unemployment rates in many states, and still strong hiring across many sectors." Still, to bring inflation down, the Federal Reserve is going to be keeping an eye on still-sticky measures, like wage growth. In this jobs report, average hourly earnings increased 0.3% from February and 4.1% year-over-year. This is a slower year-over-year pace than in February of 4.3%, but is likely still too high for the Fed, Maleyev says.

  • 5 Things to Know About Consumers in 2024 | National Jeweler
    The National Retail Federation holds its annual Retail’s Big Show event in New York City every January, bringing together retail professionals, analysts, and experts for a few days of education and networking.

    During the show, NRF Chief Economist Jack Kleinhenz held a press briefing about the state of the economy, inviting analyst Brian Nagel of Oppenheimer and Kenneth Kim, a senior economist at KPMG, to share their insights and predictions for the year ahead. Kim noted the disconnect between consumer sentiment and consumer behavior. To Kim, the primary reason for the disconnect was consumers being “shocked” by how high gas prices and food prices climbed. “It was certainly a shock and that’s why the consumer sentiment and attitudes were soured by the [amount] consumers’ households were paying for everyday goods and services,” he said. That might seem like it would result in lower spending, but it didn’t, he said, because of the job market. He added that consumer attitudes and consumer spending aren’t always so misaligned, but COVID “really turned the economy upside down, not just in the U.S., but throughout the world.”
