Mark Thoma is frustrated by FRED’s president James Bullard, who is doing some additional hand wringing over the belief that forward guidance would lead to an inflation conundrum. I mostly share Thoma’s exasperation, and what the Fed presidents should do is get in line with the majority opinion of the Fed Board, but am at least partially glad that there are people like Bullard at all, because they keep the discussion open.
