POLITICO  How Trump and Thiel resurrected J.D. Vance
Today, BRIAN DEESE, the director of the National Economic Council, is in New York today speaking to the Economic Club about the administration’s “modern industrial strategy,” a White House official told Playbook on Tuesday night. We got our hands on an excerpt from Deese’s speech, which offers some indication of how the administration aims to message on the issue: “We’re within reach of passing the Bipartisan Innovation Act, which will help reclaim America’s leadership in semiconductors; advance our leadership in technologies like artificial intelligence, 3D printing, telecommunications and biotechnology; and spur innovation clusters in places previously left behind. Congress urgently needs to send this legislation to the president’s desk.”

FINANCIAL POST:  Fed's Evans: can see some 'positive' developments in inflation

Noting that goods inflation – like that for cars — is showing signs of slowing, “if it does a turnaround then it’s going to be adding nicely to reductions” in the overall inflation rate, Evans said at the Economic Club of New York. “If inflation for some reason began to reaccelerate that would be a cause of great concern.” (Reporting by Ann Saphir)

REUTERS: Fed's Evans sees year-end rates at 2.25%-2.5%, and then likely higher

Chicago Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Evans on Tuesday said the Fed could raise its policy target range to 2.25%-2.5% by year end and then take stock of the state of the economy, but if inflation remains high will likely need to hike rates further.

"Probably we are going beyond neutral -- I mean, that's my expectation," Evans said at the Economic Club of New York. Most Fed policymakers estimate neutral to be somewhere between 2.25% and 2.5%.

BLOOMBERG: A 30-Year-Old Crypto Billionaire Wants to Give His Fortune Away
The Economic Club of New York has hosted kings, prime ministers, and presidents, as well as Amazon.com Inc.’s Jeff Bezos and JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s Jamie Dimon.

Sam Bankman-Fried, a 30-year-old cryptocurrency billionaire, is probably the first person to play a computer game while giving a talk.
As the featured guest one morning in February, Bankman-Fried looks schlubby as usual, reclining on a gaming chair in blue shorts and a gray T-shirt advertising his cryptocurrency exchange, FTX, his mop of curly hair flattened by his headphones. He’s speaking by Zoom from his office in the Bahamas.

CNBC Treasury yields fall as investors keep watch over bond spreads

In a speech to the Economic Club of New York, Kansas City Fed President Esther George said the curve didn’t necessarily signal a recession but could be a headwind for some banks.

“My concern about an inverted yield curve does not reflect its intensely debated value as a predictor of recession. Rather, my view is that an inverted curve has implications for financial stability with incentives for reach-for-yield behavior,” George said.
