Fed’ Goolsbee: I see some warning signs the real economy is weakening

I still think the ‘golden path’ is possibleHigher inflation this year has mostly looked like a blip, or a bump in the roadIf you take a step back, the arc of inflation is clearly downGoods are basically back to pre-pandemic inflation, services are a bit higher ‘but within shooting distance’, the whole puzzle is housing, which is partly just mechanicalIf we used European measures on housing inflation, we would already be at 2%The evidence is that there was a lot more immigration than we thought a year ago. That makes me cautious on over-interpreting the non-farm payrolls numberI don’t like tying our hands, it completely depends on how inflation goesThe unemployment rate is up but it’s still just 4%

This is a change in tone from Goolsbee, as he expresses more worries about inflation
