“Even if inflation predictions remain consistent, our research raises doubt on the Fed’s capacity to design a gentle landing in which inflation gets back to the two percentage objective by the end of year 2025 without a light recession,” they said.
Yet, the report disapproves of increasing the 2 percent inflation standard. The experts also recommend that the central bank scrap its current policy framework, which was implement in September 2020.
