I wouldn’t expect a smooth path month to month, but the trend is clearly favorable, she remarked. Nevertheless, President Biden’s primary focus is addressing the high costs that worry many Americans.

While inflation has receded significantly from its peak of 9.1% in June 2022, it still exceeds the Federal Reserve’s 2% target. Compared to January 2021, just before the onset of the inflation crisis, prices have surged by a staggering 18.49%.

Persistent high inflation has exerted significant financial strain on most US households, particularly impacting low-income individuals who struggle with escalating costs for essentials such as food and housing.

Despite progress, inflation has plateaued since June, with the consumer price index remaining at or above 3% for the past nine months, sparking concerns about potential stagflation. However, Yellen dismissed such worries.

I don’t foresee stagflation, she stated. Most forecasters anticipate a gradual decline in inflation over time.

Yellen also predicted a decline in rental housing costs, a major driver of inflation in recent months, as tenants secure leases at lower rates.

I anticipate that the largest contributor to inflation will decrease over the course of this year, she concluded.
