Federal Reserve sees stabilisation in the US economy

The chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, has issued one of his more buoyant statements about the US economy for some time. While he still believes that the US property market has yet to bottom out he is adamant that a period of stabilisation is starting to form which could serve as a useful springboard for a full-blown recovery in due course.

The announcement came as some analysts became concerned about how the Federal Reserve would handle the potential increase in inflation as and when the US economy recovers. Thankfully Ben Bernanke has made the right noises by suggesting that the Fed is ready to tighten monetary policy in an instant as and when inflation begins to become a problem. Even though a relatively low level of consumer confidence could yet undermine a stabilisation period in the US economy there is a feeling that slowly we are seeing the large ship, which is the US economy, begin to turn.

However, as with any large ship it will take some time for a complete turnaround and choppy waters may yet be experienced in the short to medium term. There is no doubt that this will not be a journey for the fainthearted!
