One of the Fed’s biggest hawks, championing higher rates, St. Louis Fed James Bullard, urged policymakers to raise interest rates further, saying the level will need to be higher to meet the central bank’s goal to be “sufficiently restrictive” to bring down inflation. “Even under these generous assumptions, the policy rate is not yet in a zone that may be considered sufficiently restrictive,”… “To attain a sufficiently restrictive level, the policy rate will need to be increased further.”… “Thus far, the change in the monetary-policy stance appears to have had only limited effects on observed inflation, but market pricing suggests disinflation is expected in 2023,” … “It is possible that increased financial stress could develop,”. His remarks were delivered already today in Louisville.
