“The Fed will not be swayed by political factors.”

“Expect consumer spending to moderate to a more sustainable level.”

“Yield curve inversion is a market indicator of risk but based policy on data on the real economy.”

“A  strong labor market would help lift inflation to Fed’s 2% goal.”

“Expect US  economy to still grow above trend at 2.0%-2.5% in 2019 despite low business investment, trade uncertainties.”
