Federal Reserve Chairman Shoots Down WH Inflation Story

The invasion of Ukraine by Russia is not the main cause of inflation, according to Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Wednesday.

Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) noted that inflation increased from 1.4 percent in January 2021 to seven percent by the end of the year, months before Russia invaded Ukraine, at a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Wednesday morning. Since then, it has increased by an additional 1.6 points.

Powell said, “No. “Inflation was really high. Prior to the start of the war in Ukraine, was undoubtedly high.

President Joe Biden, who has frequently attempted to attribute high costs on the war, is at odds with the Fed chair as a result of his remarks.
