The Fed has a new approach to inflation: What it means for your savings, credit-card debt — and your mortgage rate

Low-interest rates may be here to stay, but not for all financial products

The Federal Reserve is shaking things up – which is both good and bad news for consumers.

The Fed made some of the biggest changes to its policy in years following an extended review. The central bank has revised its approach to inflation and the labor market in a move that could usher in an extended period of low-interest rates.

But the new approach won’t mean that consumers will save money across the board. “The Federal Reserve’s new strategy could divide the landscape for the various financial products important to consumers,” said Lynn Reaser, chief economist at the Fermanian Business & Economic Institute at Point Loma Nazarene University.
