Summers stresses the importance of the Fed in stabilizing our economy and the multitude of complicating factors that impact it. He points to the overheated market for workers and the upward pressure on wages that lead inevitably to higher prices, along with the accompanying low unemployment rate we are experiencing. He sees progress as COVID Omicron winds down, but is cautious in predicting what steps should be taken to motivate price stability and a cooling economy. Many will appreciate his personal take on Crypto and its attempt to go mainstream in the future.
