Understanding US inflation during the COVID era

Laurence Ball, Daniel Leigh, Prachi Mishra

The Federal Reserve likely will need to push unemployment far higher than its 4.1 percent projection if it is to succeed in bringing inflation down to its 2 percent target by the end of 2024, suggests a paper to be discussed at the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA) conference on September 8. The paper, Understanding U.S. Inflation During the COVID Era, analyzes why the pandemic-related surge in inflation has persisted and runs simulations under different assumptions to look at where inflation might be heading.
