Federal Reserve Bank of New York President John Williams said on Thursday that the current monetary policy stance is restrictive enough to bring inflation down to a 2% annual pace by next year without a meaningful slowdown in the economy or an increase in the unemployment rate.
"The behavior of the economy over the past year provides ample evidence that monetary policy is restrictive in a way that helps us achieve our goals," Williams said to the Economic Club of New York.
In macro Thursday, revised  GDP numbers for Q1 showed the U.S. economy grew at a slower 1.3% annual pace in the first three months of the year, largely due to softer consumer spending. The numbers were revised down from a previous 1.6%. It was the smallest increase in twpo years, and one of the largest drivers of the economy, consumer spending, fell to 2% growth from a .5% figure last month.
