Stock market news

“Powell warns of ‘weak recovery’ if policymakers provide ‘too little’ COVID-19 relief.
Federal Reserve Chairman Jay Powell said Tuesday that policymakers should not be afraid to offer more support to the economy, warning that too little help from Congress and the Fed risks a slower recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.

“The risks of overdoing it seem, for now, to be smaller,” Powell said in prepared remarks at a National Association of Business Economics conference. “Even if policy actions ultimately prove to be greater than needed, they will not go to waste.”

Powell emphasized that the recovery would be stronger if monetary policy and fiscal policy “continue to work side by side.”

But with interest rates already near zero, the central bank has made it clear in recent months that Congress and the White House are better suited to address the needs of the economy at the moment.”
