The U.S. economy seems to have achieved price stability, a Treasury official said, although deflation remains a possibility. "While a sustained decline in the general price level is a possibility, it is still one to which a rather low probability should be attached," Treasury undersecretary for domestic finance Peter R. Fisher told an American Securitization forum.
