FOMC: Upside Risks to Inflation

Wednesday, June 25, 2008 | 03:00 PM

The well-parsed FOMC statement remains too cheery on growth, not concerned enough about inflation -- and is totally irrelevant.

What matters is whether the Fed can tighten or loosen rates or not -- and they apparently cannot. The Fed has painted themselves into a box, with a recession, housing collapse and credit crunch on one side, and $140 Oil, rampant food and other inflation on the other.

What's a jawboning Fed Chair to do? As little as possible . . .
