Bernanke signals Fed ready to act

By Robin Harding in Jackson Hole

“…Ben Bernanke sent a clear signal that the US Federal Reserve was ready to do  more to support the US economy, saying that its condition was “far from  satisfactory”.

Speaking at the Fed’s annual gathering in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Mr Bernanke  offered no direct promise of further intervention. But by spelling out the  feeble state of the economy, the Fed’s intention to be forceful and its range of  policy tools, he raised expectations of action in September.

“Taking due account of the uncertainties and limits of its policy tools, the  Federal Reserve will provide additional policy accommodation as needed to  promote a stronger economic recovery and sustained improvement in labour market  conditions,” said the Fed chairman on Friday.

The clearest hint that Mr Bernanke is ready to do more came from his  disappointment with the economy’s progress. He noted some recovery over the past  few years but said that improvement in the labour market has been “painfully  slow”.

He said “unless the economy begins to grow more quickly than it has recently,  the unemployment rate is likely to remain far above levels consistent with  maximum employment for some time”.

Much of the speech was taken up with a review of the Fed’s actions since the  financial crisis. Mr Bernanke argued that large-scale asset purchases aimed at  driving down long-term interest rates – known as quantitative easing, or QE – have worked.

“A balanced reading of the evidence supports the conclusion that central bank  securities purchases have provided meaningful support to the economic recovery  while mitigating deflationary risks,” he said.

Mr Bernanke reviewed four possible costs of additional asset purchases. He  said they could damage the function of securities markets, raise inflation  expectations, undermine financial stability or cause the Fed to make financial  losses. He said those costs were uncertain, but concluded: “At the same time,  the costs of non-traditional policies, when considered carefully, appear  manageable, implying that we should not rule out the further use of such  policies if economic conditions warrant.”

Paul Dales of Capital Economics in London, arguing that Mr Bernanke had paved  the way for a third wave of quantitative easing, said: “The speech comes across  as a staunch defence of the effectiveness of unconventional monetary policy.”

By midday, the S&P had rebounded from a drop after Mr Bernanke’s  comments, and closed up 0.5 per cent. The 10-year Treasury note rose, pushing  its yield 5 basis points lower to 1.58 per cent, as markets decided Mr  Bernanke’s comments did signal further easing.

Mr Bernanke argued that the Fed’s forecasts of future interest rates – it  anticipates rates staying low at least until late 2014 – illustrated its resolve  in supporting a recovery.

In one possible hint of future policy, he said that the current late-2014  date “is broadly consistent with prescriptions coming from a range of standard  benchmarks”, but that “a number of considerations also argue for planning to  keep rates low for a longer time than implied by policy rules developed during  more normal periods”. …”
