    Core Dangers for the Fed and China

    Stephen S. Roach

    Just as a fixation on core inflation can mislead central banks, as it has done with the US Federal Reserve, the power of a “core leader” like China’s Xi Jinping is a recipe for misdirected and ultimately unsustainable policy regimes. The very notion of a core adds a false sense of precision when addressing complex problems.

    thinks the US central bank and Chinese governance share a conceptual weakness leading to major policy blunders.
