Reuters reported that the New York Federal Reserve Bank President John Williams on Monday said that he believes the Fed will need to raise rates to a level sufficiently restrictive to push down on inflation, and keep them there for all of next year:
“I do think we’re going to need to keep restrictive policy in place for some time; I would expect that to continue through at least next year,” Williams said at a virtual event held by the Economic Club of New York, adding that he does not expect a recession.
“I do see a point, probably in 2024,” when the Fed will start reducing interest rates, he said.
