Bernanke Addresses Oil Prices, Economic Trends

Recommended Posts

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...7071000846.html

"Undoubtedly, the state of inflation expectations greatly influences actual inflation," Bernanke said.

Ideally, if inflation expectations are very stable, or "anchored," they won't vary with swinging oil prices, economic booms or busts, employment data or other changing aspects of a dynamic economy. Bernanke said expectations are better anchored than in the past, but not completely -- they still respond to economic news

"Our ability to forecast inflation and predict how inflation will respond to policy actions," he said, "depends very much on our capacity to measure and to understand what determines the public's expectations of inflation."

Are the market's expectations different from the public expecations?
