BLOOMBERG: Fed's Loretta Mester Says More Restrictive Policy Needed to Cool Prices - Bloomberg

Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland President Loretta Mester said officials need to keep raising interest rates and cannot get complacent as they work to battle the strongest inflation in a generation.

“Given the current level of inflation, its broad-based nature, and its persistence, I believe monetary policy will need to become more restrictive in order to put inflation on a sustainable downward path to 2%,” Mester said Tuesday in a speech to The Economic Club of New York.
