The New York Fed DSGE Mannequin Forecast—September 2022


This publish presents an replace of the financial forecasts generated by the Federal Reserve Financial institution of New York’s dynamic stochastic common equilibrium (DSGE) mannequin. We describe very briefly our forecast and its change since June 2022.

As traditional, we want to remind our readers that the DSGE mannequin forecast isn’t an official New York Fed forecast, however solely an enter to the Analysis workers’s general forecasting course of. For extra details about the mannequin and variables mentioned right here, see our DSGE mannequin Q & A.

The New York Fed mannequin forecasts use knowledge launched via 2022:Q2, augmented for 2022:Q3 with the median forecasts for actual GDP progress and core PCE inflation from the August launch of the Philadelphia Fed Survey of Skilled Forecasters (SPF), in addition to the yields on 10-year Treasury securities and Baa-rated company bonds, primarily based on 2022:Q3 averages as much as August 26. As well as, for every quarter beginning in 2021:This fall, the anticipated federal funds fee between one and 6 quarters into the long run is restricted to equal the corresponding median level forecast from the most recent obtainable Survey of Main Sellers (SPD) in that quarter. For the present projection, that is the July SPD.

The outlook in comparison with June is barely extra pessimistic when it comes to inflation, and broadly unchanged when it comes to actual exercise. This evolution of the projections is the results of two forces. On the one hand, the mannequin sees the underlying state of the actual economic system as stronger than it did in June, as evidenced by the upper projections for the actual pure fee of curiosity (1.4 % versus 0.9 % for 2022, 1.2 % versus 0.9 % for 2023, and 1.0 % versus 0.9 % for 2024). Then again, financial coverage is anticipated to be considerably tighter than in June, not solely in absolute phrases but additionally relative to the extra elevated actual pure fee.

These two forces roughly cancel each other out when it comes to output progress. Output progress is projected to be barely decrease for 2022 (-0.7 % versus -0.6 %), largely because of the truth that Q2 progress was decrease than nowcasted by the SPF in Could. The mannequin initiatives barely increased progress for 2023 (-0.4 % versus -0.5 %) and as soon as once more lowers the expansion forecast for 2024 (0.1 % versus 0.4 %). For 2025, the mannequin expects progress to nonetheless be beneath pattern, partly as a result of financial coverage stays fairly tight in its projections. The DSGE nonetheless sees a reasonably excessive probability of a recession within the subsequent couple of years. The likelihood of a not-so-soft touchdown–outlined as four-quarter GDP progress dipping beneath -1 %, as occurred throughout the 1990 recession, at the least as soon as over the following ten quarters–stays about 80 %. The output hole is anticipated to show unfavorable within the medium time period, declining from 0.8 % on the finish of 2022 to -0.3 % in 2023, -1.2 % in 2024, and -1.7 % in 2025.

The modified evaluation of the underlying energy of the economic system has implications for the inflation projections as effectively. The mannequin attributes the present excessive inflation much less to transitory components, comparable to provide disruptions, and extra to persistent components. As a consequence, the mannequin initiatives that inflation will stay elevated in 2022 at 4.1 %, up 0.3 share factors relative to June, and decline solely regularly thereafter (to three.1, 2.6, and a pair of.4 % in 2023, 2024, and 2025, respectively—versus projections of two.5, 2.1, and a pair of.0 % in June). As a result of the Phillips curve is estimated to be flat within the DSGE, tighter financial coverage has a restricted impact on the projected course of inflation.
