Economic Disparities and Monetary Policy

Bostic acknowledged that economic disparities have accumulated over an extended period and cannot be resolved swiftly. Furthermore, he noted that monetary policy alone has limitations in rectifying these imbalances.

“Monetary policy can contribute to creating favorable conditions for sustainable economic expansions,” Bostic explained. “This is where our policies can make a difference, improving labor market outcomes for those who are typically marginalized and addressing wealth inequality.”

By focusing on these key priorities, the Federal Reserve aims to create a stronger and more inclusive economy for all Americans. Bostic’s remarks underline the central bank’s commitment to stabilizing inflation and fostering equitable growth.
