According to BBGs Jeanna Smialek
Fed Superstars Lay Out a Map for the Central Bank’s Big Rethink

Basically a propaganda planning exercise whereby the Fed Superstars scheming how to bamboozle business and consumer expectations or how to propagandize so that "People would believe that the Fed was willing to leave rates on hold, the idea goes, so growth and inflation wouldn’t drop as much, and voilà. Crisis averted." ... "with simpler policies might be easier to explain to the general public -- and better communication leads to better outcomes." the last according to Jeanna

Bloomberg’s weekly economic research roundup.

More on the FED gang s 2% Inflation Target(ing) mistake:

Fed Officials Talk Up New Approach to Meeting Inflation Goal - bbrg

explains williams (Ph.D. Stanford) that

in order to average 2 percent over a number of years “you are going to have to be over the target roughly half the time and under it roughly half the time. ”

Fed Meeting Minutes Wednesday
I believe they are sincere in their intentions, however I have my doubts about their competency to execute their goals.
Trivia about Federal Reserve the responsibility to conduct monetary policy "so as to:
1) promote effectively the goals of maximum employment,
2) stable prices, and
3) moderate long-term interest rates."
That is THREE. Not TWO.

Below is link to Clarida s recent speech in which he makes plenty of mistakes not least of which is his sticking to the concept of centering policy s focus on the 2% inflation - a mistake as a sign of economic growth and not rising prices.

The other issue of course is whether clarida / powell and their over 2000 economist confederates are incompetent as you suspect or if they are just naturally and deliberately evil by misrepresenting inflation.

As I see it offers two things:
a) opportunity for more academic debate by economists
b) elements on which to formulate trading / investment strategies by market participants.
For me b) has more interest.

Equities may have sold off on Powell ....

Fed Chairman Powell: Market volatility won't stop more rate hikes
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell downplays concerns over market volatility and says the central bank remains on course for more interest rate hikes -

He appears to heed "Major central banks should press ahead with interest rate increases, the Bank for International Settlements said on Sunday, while recognizing that some turbulence in financial markets will have to be negotiated along the way. ... Even if there are some short-term bumps in the road ... whatever we do, we will have to do it in a very careful way,� BIS�s head of research, Hyun Song Shin, told Reuters. JP 09:32 GMT September 18, 2017 link

but he appears to have been well prepared - indeed
thing that remains to be seen is how ready to stick it out he will be on the next market puke

GVI Trader john  19:59:14 GMT - 02/27/2018  
Let's wait until Thursday to see how reacts to the market reaction to his testimony. So far he has not knocked my socks off, but he had been well prepared.

Mtl JP  19:44:18 GMT - 02/27/2018  
so john u ready to pronounce on Markets measure of the man or wait till Th ?

GVI Trader john  19:19:51 GMT - 02/27/2018  
Equities have sold off on Powell. I doubt this was his intention. Chatter he opened the door to four rate hikes. This strikes me as a stretch. He testifies again on Thursday and will have a chance to "correct" any misconceptions he feels the market has taken from from his first appearance.

Unrelated, imho, the EUR is in a liquidating market.

Mtl JP  19:19:07 GMT - 02/27/2018  
For the record:

..."what we’ve seen is incoming data that suggests that strengthening in the economy. We’ve seen continuing strength in the labor market. We’ve seen some data that will, in my case, add some confidence to my view that inflation is moving up to target. We’ve also seen continued strength around the globe, and we’ve seen fiscal policy become more stimulative."... powell Feb 27 2018
