Hawk Amphetamines

From Greg Ip, in the Wall Street Journal (page A6 of the print edition):

Inflation alarms at the Federal Reserve rang louder yesterday as a top official said slowing economic growth may not be enough to contain inflation if the public's inflationary psychology intensifies.

"If inflation turns out to exceed ... our target range, I do not believe we can count on a slowing economy to bring inflation down, by itself, quickly," William Poole, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, said in an interview. If inflation expectations rose in "a persistent way...we could expect to see that show up in measured inflation in fairly short order.

Given that this administration is all talk and very few responsible actions, look for a pause-the stock market, unemployment, and mortgage payments are followed more closely than the fall of the dollar. November is approaching, and the stock market was Bush's only bright spot. Look out below for the dollar! I bet we'll see Ben's arm in a sling from all the twisting.
