Fed’s Powell says U.S. outlook ‘remarkably positive’

[Powell] feels [the U.S. Economy] is on the verge of a “historically rare” era of ultra-low unemployment and tame prices for the foreseeable future.

It is an outlook he feels will even survive the Trump administration’s efforts to rewrite the global trading system.
