What You Need to Know About Jerome Powell's Views

Mr. Powell has joined several of his Fed colleagues in warning against relying too heavily on mathematical rules such as the so-called Taylor Rule to guide monetary policy. That could put him at odds with congressional Republicans who have pushed the Fed to adopt such a formula in an attempt to make Fed policy-making more transparent and predictable.

"Simple policy rules are widely thought to be both interesting and useful, but to represent only a small part of the analysis needed to assess the appropriate path for policy," he said February. "I am unable to think of any critical, complex human activity that could be safely reduced to a simple summary equation."

On Dodd Frank

Mr. Powell has expressed willingness to ease some of the burdens imposed on financial institutions from the 2010 Dodd Frank law, a position that could appeal to the Trump administration.

Speaking before lawmakers in June, Mr. Powell said he was looking into softening the Volcker rule preventing banks for making overly risky bets with their own money. He also said it might be appropriate to ease some of the annual stress tests that big banks must perform.

1st Cir. Rejects Borrower's Loan Modification Fraud Allegations as Untimely

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit recently held that a borrower cannot invoke the discovery rule to assert an otherwise untimely Massachusetts UDAAP claim (Chapter 93A) relating to a loan modification agreement, because the alleged harm was not “inherently unknowable” at the time of its occurrence. 

In so ruling, the Court determined that the borrower knew he was required to make monthly payments when he signed the loan modification agreement. Therefore, the statute of limitations began to run when the borrower stopped making payments, not when the creditor provided notice of the default.

A copy of the opinion is available at: Link to Opinion.

In August 2005, the borrower obtained two loans to refinance his mortgage loan. The borrower executed mortgages identifying Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. (MERS) as the mortgagee “solely as nominee” for the lender and its successors and assigns. 

In June 2010, MERS assigned one of the mortgages to a bank as trustee for securitized trust.
