Psaki says 'no economist' is predicting higher inflation when pressed by NBC reporter
Former Obama economic adviser on inflation: Policy makers didn’t fully prepare American people
Former Obama Economic Adviser Jason Furman discusses the economy trying to rebound from COVID, the Federal Reserve’s handling of surging inflation and Obama’s economic policy.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki rejected an NBC reporter's line of questioning on Monday about Americans’ economic concerns by arguing "no economist" is projecting higher inflation.
"Americans are seeing their dollars, their paychecks stretched right now," NBC's Peter Alexander said at Monday's White House press briefing. "Why should Americans not be concerned that injected another $1.57 trillion or more would raise inflation?"
"Because no economist out there is projecting that," Psaki replied.
