Fed Can Start Shrinking Its Balance Sheet, Esther George Says

Esther George, president of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank, says the Fed can start shrinking its balance sheet and that there’s still an opportunity to increase rates once more. Prior to that, Ron Temple, Lazard Asset Management’s co-head of multi-asset investment, says leadership is not a tweet. Shannon O’Neil, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, says Latin American countries have a reflex action about U.S. tough talk. Finally, Tim Pawlenty, the former governor of Minnesota and a former presidential candidate, says despite Democrat opposition, a tax bill could be forced through by Republicans if they wanted.
