Powell says the Fed will not hesitate to keep raising rates until inflation comes down





Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell emphasized his resolve to get inflation down, saying Tuesday he won’t hesitate to back interest rate increases until prices start falling back toward a healthy level.

“If that involves moving past broadly understood levels of neutral we won’t hesitate to do that,” the central bank leader told the Wall Street Journal in a livestreamed interview. “We will go until we feel we’re at a place where we can say financial conditions are in an appropriate place, we see inflation coming down.

“We’ll go to that point. There won’t be any hesitation about that,” he added.
