Chart of the week
Inflation expectations are a key variable for monetary policy. The message from the Fed is that further tightening is likely needed to ensure inflation converges to the target. Indeed, when agents anticipate inflation, they include it in their offers (of labor or of goods and services), which tends to perpetuate price adjustments. It is therefore crucial for central banks to convince them of the common benefit of keeping inflation at a low and stable level. So far, medium-term household expectations are still at levels (around 3%) incompatible with the definition of price stability.
