“It’s crisp, clear lessons,” said James Rhee, CEO of clothing chain Ashley Stewart, which is among the retailers including HSN Inc. that will give the credential weight in their hiring. “It’s not just about buying and selling. It’s extremely service-oriented, but it’s extremely more quantitative and it’s all about the innovation of technology.” The program offers 30 to 40 hours of classroom training or 15 hours of online training, and will be administered through nonprofit groups and public education partners. The overall cost is $50, but many students will be able to get subsidies. The retailers involved are encouraging local nonprofits or high schools to start using it. Some might fund groups in areas where they’re having a hard time hiring skilled workers. Some may use it to replace or supplement their own training. How much of an impact this first industry credential could have remains to be seen. It follows a hodgepodge of certificates backed by government or foundation grants that didn’t hold much sway. The NRF Foundation will evaluate the program at six to ten companies later this year to see if participants get jobs faster, stay longer and get raises faster.

Rosengren’s comments suggest he may be advocating for trimming the balance sheet sooner than that. “We should be considering it,” said Rosengren, who is not a voter on rate decisions this year, but does participate in policy debates. “One reason might be that you might get less of an exchange rate effect from long-term rates than short-term rates and so that would argue for some of the tightening coming by reducing the balance sheet and not having it all be on short-term rates.” Raising short-term rates tends to boost the value of the dollar, which can slow growth and inflation. Indeed, the dollar’s surge over the past couple years as global investors have sought the safe haven of U.S. assets has slowed exports and pushed down on prices, making it harder for the Fed to get inflation and employment back to target levels. Raising long-term rates by shedding some of the long-term bonds in the Fed’s portfolio may in Rosengren’s view allow long-term rates to rise without also pushing up the dollar. Unemployment has dropped since the financial crisis, to 4.7 percent in December, suggesting, Rosengren said, the Fed is already “running the economy hot.” A further drop toward 4 percent, he said, could put the expansion in jeopardy by forcing the Fed to lift rates more aggressively in response, which could cut off growth sharply. Historically, Rosengren said, the U.S. central bank has “not been very good at slowing the economy down just a little bit.” Wages have surged recently, with average hourly earnings climbing 2.9 percent in December compared with a year earlier. Employers in the New England region have told Rosengren they are having trouble hiring workers.
