Volcker, Greenspan, Bernanke, and Yellen contribute to a Wall Street Journal op-ed on monetary policy independence. These former Federal Reserve chiefs unite together to express their core concern that Fed Chair Jerome Powell institutes the recent dovish interest rate decrease in response to a vocal president. In their joint conviction, the Federal Reserve and its chair must be able to make monetary policy decisions in the best interests of the U.S. economy. Further, these monetary policy decisions must be independent and free of short-term political pressure without the threat of either removal or demotion of Federal Reserve leaders for non-economic reasons. Volcker, Greenspan, Bernanke, and Yellen emphasize the congressional checks and balances with respect to the Federal Reserve monetary policy purview.

In recent times, Fed Chair Jerome Powell and FOMC members approve a quarter-point interest rate decrease to help sustain the current U.S. economic expansion. This monetary policy decision arises in the broader context of relentless criticisms among the Trump hawkish hardliners. The hardliners and President Trump himself view the prior U.S. interest rate hikes as headwinds that may inadvertently offset the economic benefits of Trump tax incentives and other fiscal stimulus packages for better infrastructure, investment, and technology.
