From Bruce Krasting:
Well, we got an inflation target from the Fed. Basically, thinking at the Fed has been eliminated. The process has been automated. Bernanke has convinced the Fed board to adopt Core PCE as a determinate of monetary policy. So long as CPCE stays below 2%, Ben is going to have his foot planted on the monetary metal. It's "full speed ahead" according to the Chairman. He's pushed things off until 2014 – a very long time from now.
My question: "Why is the Fed using CPCE versus another measure of inflation?" The very good news is that there is answer, and it comes from a very "reliable" source – The Federal Reserve. A detailed analysis on this topic was conveniently made public just a month ago.
