San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank President John Williams Speaks to USF on The Economy

San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank President John Williams Speaks to USF on The Economy | USF in the News | Scoop.it

"Speaking at the University of San Francisco, Williams said the U.S. economy is close to maximum employment and inflation is poised to rise back to the Fed's 2-percent target, and that therefore it is time for the central bank to increase rates gradually.

"It makes sense, I would say, to ease off on the gas a bit," Williams said. "We do want to run a hot economy for a while (but) we don’t want it to be too hot for too long."

Professor Ken Goldstein on premature projections of Presidential election results | USF in the News | Scoop.it

“A group of data scientists, journalists and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs is seeking to upend that reporting tradition, providing detailed projections of who is winning at any given time on Election Day in key swing states, and updating the information in real time from dawn to dusk.”

“The networks actually do this quarantine room because they do not want this info to leak out,” said Ken Goldstein, a professor of politics at the University of San Francisco and a member of ABC’s decision desk. “That’s to their credit.”
