Since 2018 the inflation breakeven for the benchmark US Treasury 10-year bond has racheted down after each new Fed policy to raise inflation.  It seems to be doing so again.
 
During the August policy announcement no word was given how greater-than 2% inflation goal would be achieved.  Why not? Because in the technocrat’s mind the problem isn’t central bank competence but the public.  And not in the sense that its populated by mouth-breathing Arizona State University graduates.  No, the problem is the public believes in the omnipotence of the Fed!  
 
As such, the thinking goes, the central bank’s attempts at inflation since 2011 (i.e. forward guidance, inflation targeting, symmetrical inflation, average inflation) have failed because the public does not believe the Fed would ever allow inflation.  No matter what monetary technocrats say, the public is not credibly convinced that the central bank will be irresponsible.  
 
Thus the August fanfare that the Fed was ‘ready to get nuts’.
